What is the Lyons Magnus Specialty Drink Class Action Lawsuit About?

A $3,500,000 class action lawsuit has been settled with Lyons Magnus Specialty Drink. The class action settlement is the end result of a 2022 FDA recall that affected dozens of popular products including a variety of drinks such as thickened dairy drinks, non-dairy beverages like almond-flavored Barista Style, plant protein drinks, along with nutritional drinks, protein shakes, and cold brew coffee with oat milk in different flavors.

The Lyons Magnus class action lawsuit alleged that the defendant marketed some of its product in a deceptive manner by not informing consumers of the potential risk or hazard of containing certain dangerous bacterium such as Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum. According to the FDA recall, these bacterium could result in life threatening health risks from potential infections that compromise the immune system.

Lyons Magnus, LLC, the marketers and producer of the alleged products, has denied any wrongdoing and has not accepted any of the allegations, nor has the Court made any determination as to the validity of the claims on the class action lawsuit. However, Lyons Magnus has agreed to pay out a $3.5 Million settlement fund to qualifying claimants who purchased products that fell under the FDA's massive recall in 2022.
