ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis consumer alleges a canned vegetable is falsely advertised as having no preservatives.

James Gray, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Jan. 15 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against McCall Farms Inc. alleging that the South Carolina corporation violated the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in September or October 2018, he purchased defendant's Glory Foods Simply Seasoned Blackeye Peas from Schnucks for $1.79. The suit states the product's label states that it contains no preservatives, but the plaintiff alleges it contains preservative calcium disodium EDTA. 

The plaintiff alleges because the product contains this ingredient, the no preservatives representation is false, deceptive and misleading.

The plaintiff seeks an order certifying this case as a class action, award for compensatory damages, with interest, costs, attorney's fees and all other relief deemed just and proper. He is represented by Matthew H. Armstrong of Armstrong Law Firm LLC in St. Louis, David C. Nelson of Nelson & Nelson Attorneys at Law PC in Belleville, Illinois and Stuart L. Cochran of Steckler Gresham Cochran PLLC in Dallas, Texas.
