Ice Cream Story Gets WNYW, Arnold Diaz Sued

In May, Arnold Diaz did a “Shame, Shame, Shame” report on WNYW/Channel 5 accusing a local ice cream chain of claiming to be healthier than it actually is. For evidence, the veteran consumer reporter Diaz sent samples to a laboratory (think Seinfeld episode) to prove his point.

Now, Diaz and WNYW are now being sued by the ice cream company –D’Lites Emporium owner Matthew Prince.

Prince states in his complaint that the process of making his ice cream would change nutritional value in liquid form. Diaz’s samples, apparently, melted substantially.
