Every so often a product’s claims of being all natural is challenged by a class action lawsuit. A recent example of such a filing can be found in the recently settled case called Krinsk v. Monster Beverage Corporation. The suit was file over allegations that the Defendant (Monster Energy Company) labeled its Hansen’s Natural Juices, Hansen’s Smoothie Nectars, Hubert’s Lemonade, and Hubert Half and Half Lemonade products as being all natural even though artificial ingredients and/or added colors may have been in the mix. While the Defendant denies the allegations brought forth in the suit, it has determined it’s in its best interest to put an end to the matter by settling the case prior to trial (the Plaintiffs have also come to the same conclusion). Those who wish to file a claim for payment can begin by going to the Natural Beverage Settlement page and entering a name, address, and email address to start the online filing process.
