Ferrero sets aside $3m for law suit

Italian confectionery group Ferrero has agreed to set aside $3m to settle a class-action lawsuit championed by a Californian mother after she discovered the group's Nutella chocolate spread packed more calories than jam or syrup. Notices of class action settlements said Ferrero USA, the group's US division, would pay up to $4 for every jar of Nutella bought in California since August 2009, or bought anywhere else in the United States since January 2008.
