- Nutella Settles Lawsuit For False Advertising
Last year Athena Hohenberg, a San Diego mother of a four-year-old girl, filed a class-action lawsuit against Ferrero USA, the makers of Nutella for false advertising. Nutella is a sweet chocolate spread that is full of sugar and palm oil. Hohenberg claims that she was shocked to learn that Nutella, is not that much healthier than a candy bar. She argued that the products television ads falsely promoted the spread as a healthy breakfast option. Hohenberg claimed that she never would have purchased the product for her family if she knew how unhealthy it was.
According to ABC News, Ferrero has settled the lawsuit for $3 million; 2.5 million will be divided among consumers. Anyone who bought Nutella from Jan. 1, 2008 to Feb. 3, 2012 can file a claim. Consumers can receive $4 for every jar of Nutella purchased during that time frame; there is a $20 maximum per household. Nutella has also agreed to change its television ads, website and marketing claims.

Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Phillips Law Group provides a collaborative environment in which both attorneys and staff work together to achieve the best outcome for clients. As an attorney here at PLG, I’m lucky to be surrounded by seasoned attorneys and knowledgeable staff that share my enthusiasm for helping accident victims. The team here at PLG treats clients with respect and empathy while fighting hard to get the results they deserve.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
