Chobani, the Greek yogurt giant, has sued far-right radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for publishing what it said was false information about the company.

Chobani alleged that Jones and his InfoWars website posted fabricated stories earlier this month that linked Chobani owner Hamdi Ulukaya and the company to a sexual assault case involving refugee children, reported The Associated Press.

The complaint said InfoWars released a video on April 11 falsely claiming that Chobani was “importing migrant rapists,” with the goal of causing customers to boycott its products.

Chobani’s attorneys said Jones has ignored requests to remove the inaccurate coverage.

Chobani filed the lawsuit Monday in Idaho District Court in Twin Falls, where the company operates its largest yogurt plant in the world. It’s seeking $10,000 in damages.

InfoWars didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
