When a product claims to be all natural it better have some solid supporting evidence to back the claim up as such products can be sitting ducks for a class action lawsuit. The lawsuit titled Shalikar v. Skeeter Snacks, LLC has recently come to settlement terms in hopes to put an end to allegations that the Defendant deceptively labeled and advertised certain products as being all natural when they contained non-natural, artificial, and/or synthetic ingredients including anhydrous dextrose, lecithin, soy lecithin, and cocoa (processed with alkali). It should be made absolutely clear that the settlement does not mean the court decided in favor of one party over another. However, both parties have agreed to the settlement in order to avoid the time and expense of proceeding towards a trial. Those who believe they are due compensation can submit an online claim by going to the Skeeter Snacks Settlement page and clicking the Claim Form tab.
