(NaturalNews) 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.
Starting today, 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.
So Natural News is officially requesting that all readers who purchased Naked Juice in the last six years file a settlement claim and get your check for up to $45 from PepsiCo.
To file a claim, you will have to give this website your name and address. I cannot guarantee your privacy if you participate in this process, as we do not control the settlement website. Presumably, your name will be protected by the courts on this, but ya never know...
The deadline for submitting your claim is December 17, 2013.
Please join me in sharing this story everywhere so that everyone who legitimately qualifies for this settlement participates and receives compensation from Naked Juice.
Please note that according to the legal documents posted on the settlement website, Naked Juice can still jerk everyone around on this and refuse to pay your claim if they believe your claim is false. If that happens to you, please let us know here at Natural News so that we can break the story about how Naked Juice is refusing to pay settlement claims (if this occurs, that is).
Also, for the record, in no way does Natural News 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!
