Kevin Malek v. Pressed Juicery Inc.
According to a class action lawsuit, Pressed Juicery misrepresents the Greens Juices as containing green vegetables, like spinach, as major ingredients when the first ingredients are actually sugary fruit juices, like apples or pineapples.
The defendant vigorously rejects all claims of wrongdoing, and the court, in this case, has not decided in favor of any party. Instead of that, the parties have reached an agreement to settle.
Kevin Malek Settlement
Class Members who submit a valid claim will be eligible to receive up to $1 for each Pressed Juicery Green Juices up until 10 purchased during the Class Period.
There is no requirement for proof of purchase.
The actual amount of each Class Member’s payment will be determined by dividing the total number of qualifying purchases claimed by all Class Members by the Kevin Malek Settlement’s residual amount, which is $695,000 minus service awards, lawyers’ fees, and other expenses.
If the total exceeds $1, each claimant will get $1 for up to 10 juices. If the difference is less than $1, each eligible Class Member will receive the lesser amount for up to 10 purchases.
Any remaining funds will be returned to Pressed Juices.
Along with these compensatory damages, Pressed Juices has committed to update the ingredient list on the front labels of its Green Juices and other products to reflect the real order of predominance of components by volume in the products for a minimum of five years.
For at least four years following the effective date of the settlement, Pressed Juicery’s counsel or a designee will meet annually with the company’s marketing department to evaluate and comply with the Kevin Malek Settlement agreement’s injunctive requirements.
The settlement with Pressed Juicery is due for final approval on October 8, 2021. The deadline to make a claim, object to the settlement, or withdraw from it is August 9, 2021.
