Jonathan Chuang, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc., Mott’s,
LLP and General Mills, Inc., Defendants, Case No. BC649291, (Cal.
Super., February 6, 2017), seeks compensatory, treble and punitive
damages, prejudgment interest on all amounts awarded, restitution
and all other forms of equitable monetary relief, injunctive
relief, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses and costs
resulting from breach of express and implied warranty, unjust
enrichment and for violation of the California Consumers Legal
Remedies Act, and California Business and Professions Code.

Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. is a corporation organized under
the laws of Delaware, with its principal place of business at 5301
Legacy Drive, Plano, Texas, 75024. Dr. Pepper is in the business

Pepper while General Mills produces, markets, distributes and

they contain significant amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables as
shown on their product labels.
