What is the Celsius False Advertising Class Action Lawsuit About?
A $7,800,000 No Proof Required Class Action Settlement has been reached with Celsius over allegations that its product contained preservatives when the labeling clearly indicated that the Celsius beverages did not contain any preservatives. The Celsius class action lawsuit alleged that Celsius violated certain consumer protection laws by labeling its products with "No Preservatives" while the products contained citric acid, a known preservative. The consumer laws mentioned in the lawsuit are as follows:
• California False Advertising Law (FAL)
• California Unfair Competition Law (UCL)
• California Consumers Legal Remedies Act (CLRA)
• Common Law
For more examples on consumer protection laws, you can find out about laws like the telephone consumer protection act, or the TCPA, the biometric information protection act, or BIPA, and the fair and accurate credit transactions act, or FACTA to name a few.
Celsius Holdings, the owner and manufacturer of Celsius beverages denies any wrongdoing and claims that they used the ingredient citric acid as a flavor enhancer, not as a preservative. However, they have decided to settle the lawsuit for nearly $8 Million in order to avoid the costs and headache of court fees and proceedings. The courts have not decided that any parties in the settlement are right or wrong, and the fact that there is a settlement does not mean that Celsius indeed broke consumer protection laws. The following Celsius drinks are affected and qualify for this no proof class action for payout during certain dates (see dates below):
• Celsius Heat
• Celsius BCAA+Energy
• Celsius with Stevia
• Celsius On-The-Go
• Flo Fusion
• Celsius Beverages labeled "Celsius Live Fit"
How Do I Qualify?
You may qualify for the Celsius class action settlement if you purchased any of the above Celsius beverages anytime in the United States, not for the purpose of resale between January 1, 2015 through November 23, 2022.
How Much Will I Get Paid?
The maximum payout for claims made without proof purchase is capped at $20 per claim without proof, and at $250 per claim if you can provide proof of Celsius beverage purchase in the form of receipts or other evidence. Each can of Celsius beverages claimed will amount to a $1.00 payout. For Celsius "On-The-Go" and Flo Fusion drinks, which are typically packs of 14 in the form of powder, will amount to a $5.00 payout per pack of 14 servings.
Do I Need Proof of Purchase?
No, the Celsius class action settlement does not require proof of purchase for the $20 payout per claim as a portion of the $7.8 Million settlement fund. If you file a valid claim, and do not have proof of purchase, the class action will pay up to $20.00 per claim, as long as it is a valid and timely claim and the products are covered (see list above for covered products). Note, however, that class action settlement payouts may be pro-rated and adjusted. If there are more claims filed than expected, the payout amount will be reduced per person (pro-rated).
