A $3 million class-action lawsuit has been settled against the Italian maker of Nutella -- all for having "implied" in its advertising that the chocolate spread is healthier than it really is.

Athena Hohenberg, a mother of a family living in San Diego, said she was shocked to learn that contrary to the impression given by the company’s advertisement, the product was not nutritious, but contain dangerous levels of saturated fat.Also she discovered it contained 21 grams of sugar, 200 calories, and 11 grams of fat per serving.
According to Her and her lawyers, Nutella has been falsely presenting their product as making a “balanced breakfast,” while showing healthy looking families eating it with healthy foods such as fruits and whole wheat bread.
