If you’ve enjoyed any Naked Juice beverages like the Green Machine and Mighty Mango in the last six years, you could claim a piece of a $9 million class action settlement, ABC News reports. http://wfts.tv/14BoVxt
The lawsuit filed against Naked Juice, owned by Pepsi Co. , was consolidated from five class action complaints regarding the company’s “100 percent juice”, “all natural” and other labeling.
The suit claims that the Naked Juice products listed on NakedJuiceClass.com were not all natural and contained GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms).
While Naked Juice denies that the company violated laws and consumer protection statutes related to advertising, marketing and labeling, a $9 million settlement was reached.
Anyone whose purchased an eligible Naked Juice flavor between Sept. 27, 2007 and August 19, 2013 can send in a claim form electronically or through mail by Dec. 17, 2013. People who bought Naked Juice and still have proof of purchase can get up to $75, while those without proof of purchase can receive up to $45.
A Naked Juice spokesperson made the following statement:
“Our juices and smoothies are made with all-natural fruits and vegetables—with no added sugar and no preservatives,” the company spokeswoman said in a statement. “In some products, we also include an added boost of vitamins. Naked juice and smoothies will continue to be labeled ‘non-GMO,’ and until there is more detailed regulatory guidance around the word ‘natural’ ―we’ve chosen not to use ‘All Natural’ on our packaging. ”
The company rep says they plan to get independent testing to verify their “non-GMO” status.
