TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey dairy has filed a federal copyright lawsuit against the makers of Halo Top ice cream.
Newsworks.org reports (http://bit.ly/2p4gF9Z ) the Trenton-based Halo Farms filed the suit last week against California-based Eden Creamery, demanding that they stop using the Halo Top name and destroy all existing products.
Halo Top ice cream is sold in markets across the country and advertised as low calorie and high in protein.
Halo Farms products, including ice cream, are only available around New Jersey. But the company says Halo Top is confusing customers into believing their products are diet offerings from Halo Farm.
