The Honest Company has been hit again with another lawsuit challenging company’s claims.

The Organic Consumers Association filed the lawsuit in California claiming that the company’s “organic” Premium Infancy Formula violates the Organic Food Production Act of 1990 and the California Organic Products act of 2003. The company says the formula is falsely labeled because it “contains 11 substances prohibited by federal law from organics.”

The Honest Company responded to the lawsuit according to a report by Fortune, stating:

“Our Organic Infant Formula is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration and meets all safety and nutritional standards. It is also certified USDA Organic by an independent third party, in strict accordance with the National Organic Program. We are confident this lawsuit will be dismissed.”

Honest sells a variety of products, from: baby-care, home-care and personal-care.

The Honest Company has been sued before over their sunscreen and cleaning products, which the company claimed were allegations “without merit.”
