Naked Juice Co. has agreed to settle putative class claims that it falsely advertised some of its juice and smoothie products as “all natural” and not genetically modified (GMO); while denying the allegations, the company will establish a $9-million settlement fund. Pappas v. Naked Juice Co. of Glendora, Inc., No. 11-8276 (U.S. Dist. Ct., C.D. Cal., motion for preliminary approval filed July 2, 2013). Members of the putative nationwide class will each be eligible under the proposed agreement to recover a maximum of $45 dollars. The agreement will also require Naked Juice to establish a product verification program, hire or assign a quality control manager to oversee the independent testing process for the company’s product line, establish a database to allow the electronic tracking and verification of product ingredients, and modify future labeling, advertising and marketing to cease using “All Natural” and related statements.
