A northern California man earlier this month filed a class action lawsuit against Kraft Foods, which alleged that the company's Capri Sun juice contained artificial ingredients despite its label as "all-natural."

The filing on behalf of Yuri Osborne said that Capri Sun included "unnatural ingredients" including citric acid and "natural flavor." The lawsuit seeks $5 million in damages, court costs and class status for consumers that purchased Capri Sun over the past four years.

“The market for all natural foods has grown rapidly in the past few years, a trend [Kraft] seeks to take advantage of through the subject false and misleading advertising,” attorneys wrote in the filing, according to Legal Newsline.

Kraft previously faced a lawsuit over its "all-natural" Capri Sun in 2007, when a Florida woman sued over the company's use of high-fructose corn syrup. The company eventually changed the label and the lawsuit was dropped.
