Nestle has recently seen some negative media attention due to the class action lawsuit filed against them by a San Diego woman named Katie Simpson.  Simpson alleges that Nestle places “profits over public health by not removing trans fat from its pizzas.”  She refers to trans fat as a toxic carcinogen and demands $5 million in the class action lawsuit.
