Hershey To Be Sued For Ice Breaker Gum Packaging 'Slack'

July 22, 2015

A lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court in New York against Hershey Co., claiming that its Ice Breakers gum brand contains more "slack" or air in the container than is functionally necessary, reports Legal Newsline. The plaintiffs claim the container size misleads customers as to the volume of gum they are buying, which may violate the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act, says the source. There are allegedly eight flavors of the Ice Breakers Ice Cube gum in tube packaging affected by this lawsuit.
