It’s been proven time and again that consumers tend to become a bit perturbed when they believe a product has made inaccurate claims on its label. The latest evidence to support this statement is demonstrated by the Retta et al. v. Millennium Products et al class action lawsuit. The suit was filed over allegations that Millennium Products mislabeled certain kombucha products in regards to the content of added sugar, antioxidants, and alcohol. Whole Foods was also brought into the suit as a Defendant based on allegations that the store violated the law by reselling the kombucha products that were allegedly mislabeled by Millennium. The Defendants deny that they have done anything wrong or unlawful and assert that the disputed labels were truthful, not misleading, and consistent with the law but have agreed to settle the matter to avoid the costs and burdens of further litigation. Those who believe they are eligible for compensation can file an online claim by going to the Millennium Settlement page and clicking the Claim Form tab.
