Specialty Food Co. Accused Of Selling Bogus 'Raw' Juice
By Zachary Zagger
Law360, New York (October 18, 2013, 5:36 PM ET) -- A group of consumers filed a class action against Hain Celestial Group Inc. in New York federal court on Monday, claiming the specialty food company had duped them into paying premium prices for “100% raw” and “unpasteurized” fruit and vegetable juice that was actually neither raw nor unpasteurized.
The lawsuit, filed by four plaintiffs from New York and California, says the products are marketed that way in an effort to sway health-conscious consumers and charge a premium price for the products.
