Low Calorie My Foot, Class Tells Galeos

LOS ANGELES (CN) - A federal class action claims Galeos "aggressively" pushes its miso salad dressings as low-fat and low-calorie, on (nonparty) Jillian Michaels' TV show "The Biggest Loser," though the dressings are neither low fat nor low in calories. The class claims Galeos advertises its Miso Caesar Dressing as containing 14 calories, 1gram of fat and 56 milligrams of sodium per tablespoon, but an independent lab found it contains 120 calories, 11 grams of fat and 390 mg of sodium.

The class seeks restitution, statutory and punitive damages for unfair competition, false advertising, consumer fraud, breach of warranty, unjust enrichment, and negligent misrepresentation. It is represented by Michael Flannery with Carey, Danis & Lowe of St. Louis, Mo.

The only defendant in the complaint is Galeos LLC, based in Costa Mesa, Calif.
