Ocean Spray | Class Action Settlement

Image result for ocean spray
Ocean Spray has agreed to pay $5.4 million to resolve claims that some of their juices were falsely advertised as containing “no artificial flavors.” This settlement is the result of a 2017 lawsuit, which alleged that Ocean Spray wrongfully represented their products as containing “No High Fructose Corn Syrup, Artificial Colors or Flavors” in order to deceive customers into purchasing their products.
The plaintiffs claim that Ocean Spray juice products contain a synthetic form of malic acid, which is derived from petrochemicals and produces a tart flavor in food. The company has not admitted to any wrongdoing but has agreed to resolve the claims within the terms of the $5.4 million settlement.
This settlement benefits anyone who purchased certain Ocean Spray products between Jan. 1st, 2011 and Jan. 31st, 2020. A full list of included products is available in the “Who Is Covered” section of the class-action lawsuit’s website.
The settlement will provide $1 in cash for each product purchased. Up to 20 products can be claimed by a household, for a maximum payment of $20. No receipts are required, but claimants will be asked, under penalty of perjury, to provide the date of the purchase and the address of the store where each purchase was made.
In order to benefit from this settlement, Class Members must fully complete and submit a Claim Form by July 10th, 2020. This can be done either online or by mail. More information can be obtained directly from the class action lawsuit’s official website at ArtificialFlavorLitigation.com.
