A New York woman is suing Kellogg’s over the fruit filling in its pop-tarts.

The woman filed a lawsuit against the company because, according to the lawsuit, the advertising on boxes for their strawberry pop-tarts are misleading because the filling uses less strawberries than expected.

The complainant said the pastry contains more pears and apples than strawberries.

The lawsuit calls for a jury trial and asks for more than $5 million in damages.

The lawyers representing this case are also representing an Illinois woman who sued Kellogg’s in August, who makes similar allegations.

Kellogg’s has not commented on either lawsuit.
