Do you drink Naked Juice “all natural” juices and smoothies like Green Machine and Berry Blast? If you’ve purchased Naked Juice between September 27, 2007 and August 19, 2013, you may be eligible to claim up to $75 from a recent class action lawsuit.
The $9 million settlement arose after complaints that Naked Juice used false advertising and mislabeled its products in violation of state and federal laws. The consumer class action lawsuit alleged that Naked Juice products were sold as “100% juice” or containing “all natural fruit,” when many of their juices and smoothies actually contained GMO ingredients.
Naked Juice, which is owned by Pepsi, denies the settlement’s allegations but the company will be changing its product labels moving forward.
So how can you claim up to $75 from the Naked Juice class action lawsuit? Find out below:

Naked Juice Denies Settlement Allegations, Says Products are Non-GMO
The current settlement is the result of five separate class action lawsuits against Naked Juice, which all charged that Naked Juice used false or misleading advertising to market its products.
Naked Juice is advertised as a healthy, “all natural” alternative to other fruit juices and smoothies, but the lawsuits alleged that Naked Juice products contain genetically modified (GMO) ingredients.
In a statement responding to the class action settlement, a Naked Juice representative denied these claims:
“Our juices and smoothies are made with all-natural fruits and vegetables — with no added sugar and no preservatives … In some products, we also include an added boost of vitamins. Naked juice and smoothies will continue to be labeled ‘non-GMO,’ and until there is more detailed regulatory guidance around the word ‘natural’ — we’ve chosen not to use ‘All Natural’ on our packaging.”
The company also announced plans to enlist an unspecified third-party to investigate its products and disprove the lawsuit’s claims that they’re made with GMO fruits and vegetables.
