What Is Vizzy hard seltzer false advertising $9.5M Class Action Settlement?
Molson Coors allegedly fortified its Vizzy products with an “insignificant amount” of vitamin C, according to one of three class action lawsuits taking issue with the product. The company then labeled and advertised Vizzy as containing vitamin C from a “superfruit.” The plaintiffs say this marketing is misleading and dangerous.
Molson Coors Beverage Co. has agreed to a $9.5 million class action lawsuit settlement to resolve claims its Vizzy hard seltzer products were misleadingly labeled as having “antioxidant vitamin C from acerola superfruit.”
The name of the case is:
- Marek, et al. v. Molson Coors Beverage Co. USA LLC, Case No. 21-cv-07174-WHO, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
- Williams, et al. v. Molson Coors Beverage Co. USA LLC, Case No. 21-cv-50207, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois
- Eyzaguirre, et al. v. Molson Coors Beverage Co. USA LLC, Case No. 22-cv-60889, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida
What Is This Class Action All About?
The company has not admitted any wrongdoing but has agreed to settle the claims for $9.5 million.
Class members who file a valid and timely claim will receive a cash payment for any product they purchased:
- $5 per 24-pack unit purchased
- $3 per 12-pack unit purchased
