Flax USA Inc. has reached a class action lawsuit settlement over claims it deceptively labeled its flax milk products as “All Natural.” If you purchased flax milk sold by Flax USA in the United States between Nov. 5, 2009 and Sept. 22, 2014, you may be eligible to claim up to $32.50 from the Flax USA flax milk class action settlement.
The flax milk settlement resolves a class action lawsuit (Madenlian v. Flax USA) that claims consumers were misled into purchasing Flax USA flax milk products based on the misleading statement: “All Natural Dairy Free Beverage.”
Plaintiffs allege the statement is misleading because the products contain the following artificial or synthetic ingredients: Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, and Vitamin B12. Had they known Flax USA flax milk products contained these allegedly artificial or synthetic ingredients, they would not have purchased the products, the flax milk class action lawsuit claims.
Flax USA denies the allegations and contends that the statements “All Natural Dairy Free Beverage* / *Added Vitamins & Minerals,” read in combination, do no not represent that the added vitamins and minerals are “all natural.” However, the company has agreed to establish a $260,000 class action settlement fund to avoid the uncertainty of going to trial.
Class Members of the Flax USA flax milk settlement include all persons in the United States who purchased any of the following products from Nov. 5, 2009 to Sept. 22, 2014:
Flax USA Flax Milk Original
Flax USA Flax Milk Unsweetened
Flax USA Flax Milk Vanilla
