Millennium Products, Inc. and Whole Foods Market, Inc. have reached a settlement in the class action lawsuit against them. The lawsuit alleges Millennium mislabeled products by advertising and labeling them as non-alcoholic even though they contain more alcohol than is permitted in order to label them as non-alcoholic beverages. They failed to also include added sugar as an ingredient on the label and used the term “antioxidant” on the labels of these products when they do not contain antioxidants. Whole Foods was also included in this class action due to the fact they violated the law by reselling the allegedly mislabeled products.
The products included in this class action are:
- Classic Kombucha: Original, Citrus Gingerade, Multi-Green, Third Eye Chai
- Classic Synergy: Cosmic Cranberry, Maqui Berry Mint, Divine Grape, Gingerberry Raspberry Rush, Strawberry Serenity, Superfruits, Trilogy
- Enlightened Kombucha: Botanic No. 3, Botanic No. 7, Botanic No. 9, Citrus, Gingerade, Multi-Green, Original
- Enlightened Synergy: Black Chia, Cosmic Cranberry, Cherry Chia, Gingerberry, Grape Chia, Green Chia, Guava Goddess, Mystic Mango, Passionberry Bliss, Raspberry Chia, Strawberry Serenity, Trilogy
