The Naked Juice company was sued in 2011, accused of using GMO ingredients and deceptively labeling its products, “all natural.” As the Organic Consumers Association explains:
According to plaintiffs, Naked Juice used soy ingredients that are genetically engineered “by design or by contamination.” (Naked Juice doesn’t use certified organic or verified non-GMO soy.) Naked Juice intentionally used misleading language to give consumers “the false impression that the beverage’s vitamin content is due to the nutritious fruits and juices, rather than added synthetic compounds.” And the PepsiCo subsidiary contained a laundry list of synthetic chemicals, including calcium pantothenate (synthetically produced from formaldehyde).
PepsiCo, of course, is the owner of Naked Juice and also the same company that bankrolled the defeat of Prop 37 in California, the “Right to Know” GMO labeling campaign.
You may now be eligible to receive up to $45 directly from PepsiCo. Any person who claims to have purchased Naked Juice — even if they have NO PROOF of such a purchase — can now participate in the class action claims and receive up to a $45 check as part of the settlement.
IMPORTANT: Share this story with others to spread this news so that as many people as possible legitimately claim their portion of this settlement!
I realize $45 isn’t a lot of money, especially if you’ve probably spent far more than that on Naked Juice since 2007, the time window covered by this class action settlement. Nevertheless, if enough people participate in this class action claim, it will not only cost PepsiCo $9 million in payouts, it will also send a powerful message that consumers are fed up with being deceived about the products they purchase.
The direct link to the claim form is here:
The deadline for submitting your claim is December 17, 2013.
Also, for the record, in no way does GMO Labeling encourage anyone to falsely file a claim if they never actually purchased Naked Juice products. Be honest but spread the word, too, because this settlement likely affects tens of millions of people in the U.S. alone!
Boycott Naked Juice for deceiving customers!
