Skittles Candy Owner Sues Zkittlez For Trademark Infringement

The lawsuit was filed Monday in courts in California, Illinois, as well as Canada

Mars Inc.’s Wrigley unit, the owner of Skittles, Starburst and Life Savers candies, filed complaints against Terphogz, the maker of THC-infused candy Zkittlez, on the grounds of trademark infringement.

Lawsuits were filed Monday in U.S. federal courts Illinois and California and in Canada seeking to halt the sale of Zkittlez goods, drug paraphernalia, clothing and merchandise.

“At Mars Wrigley we take great pride in making fun treats that parents can trust giving to their children and children can enjoy safely. We are deeply disturbed to see our trademarked brands being used illegally to sell THC-infused products, and even more so to hear of children ingesting these products and becoming ill,” a Mars company spokeswoman said in a email.
