Hey Guys! Hope you are having an awesome start to your week. Mine is going great!
This past weekend I decided to do some research on Quest bars. Anyone who knows me knows that I am totally addicted to quest bars– yes like 4-5 bars a day sometimes (not kidding). I have an addictive personality and when I like something I tend to go all out until I get sick of it and move on to the next thing. Thus, I thought my addiction to quest bars was one of those personality quirks and since the ingredients are mostly clean I didn’t give it a second thought. Well, I have heard from other (normal) people that Quest bars are addictive and one of my friends has a conspiracy theory that they put something in them to make them that way… hmmmmm…. not sure I believe that one, but I was googling to find out what other people had to say about it.
That’s when I found out that Quest has recently come under fire for allegedly misrepresenting nutrition facts on their labels. Here is an excerpt from the complainant:
So apparently Quest denies the complaint and fired back with this quote:
“Quest has been named in a lawsuit regarding our fiber count. It is our belief and conviction that this lawsuit is without merit. The things a plaintiff states in a lawsuit are just that — – his statements. He doesn’t have to prove them to put them in the lawsuit. He just needs to write them down. Proof is another matter. We believe that what is written in this lawsuit results from not understanding the current state of fiber science. We are fighting this case to make it clear to our customers and partners that our label information is 100% accurate.
Make no mistake, Quest Nutrition will not back down in the face of what we believe are attacks based on lack of good information. The outpouring of support from our customers and supporters on this issue has been overwhelming. We’re very grateful for the support, and we want to assure everyone that we are committed to bringing the highest quality products to our loyal fan base. We have nothing to hide and we look forward to a very visible public refutation of these unfounded claims.”
