Hagens Berman LLP Investigating ConAgra Foods16:21 EDT Tuesday, July 12, 2011 SEATTLE (Business Wire) -- Hagens Berman, a consumer-rights class-action law firm, today announced that it is investigating ConAgra Foods, Inc. (NYSE: CAG) after reports that the company misled consumers by claiming that its Wesson-brand cooking oil products is 100 percent natural. The firm began its investigation after receiving reports that the company marketed its Wesson-brand cooking oils as 100 percent natural. The bottles reportedly also featured the word "pure" on the labels and in advertisements. However, consumer reports claim that the cooking oils contain unnatural ingredients, including genetically modified plants. Hagens Berman is investigating these claims to determine if ConAgra's labeling and marketing of the products constitute a violation of various California consumer protection laws. Specifically, the firm is investigating whether ConAgra's marketing and labeling of the products misled consumers. Hagens Berman is interested in talking to consumers who purchased Wesson-brand cooking oils and feel they were misled about the presence of unnatural or genetically modified ingredients.
