A Bronxville woman is suing Smart Balance, because she says the product has less plant sterols in it than the company claims, according to Lohud. Toni-Ann Sforza says she bought the product all the time, mostly because it said it had 100mg of plant sterols. Plant sterols may lower bad cholesterol.
Bronxville's Sforza isn't the only one suing the company. A class-action suit is being filed in California as well. That suit also claims that the amount of plant sterols in the product are significantly less than what is advertised on the package.
It's not known how much money the Bronxville woman is asking for in the lawsuit.
