Naked Juice May Owe You Some Money

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, was consolidated from five class action complaints filed against Naked Juice, which is owned by PepsiCo. The lawsuit alleged the company violated state and federal laws and consumer protection statutes related to advertising, labeling and marketing of certain products.
“The lawsuit claims that the eligible products contain ingredients that are not ‘All Natural’ and contain GMOs (or Genetically Modified Organisms). Naked Juice denies all these claims,” the settlement website says.

The settlement website launched last week after Naked Juice and the plaintiffs announced a settlement last month.
A spokeswoman for Naked Juice said the company is “pleased to have reached this agreement.”
“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.”
