Misrepresentation can cost you a lot, recently the Singer v. WWF Operating Company lawsuit claim that Whitewave has misrepresented the ingredient. WWF- Whitewave food is the maker of Horizon Organic and Silk Milk products. Horizon Organic and Silk Milk has represented the wrong ingredient; as on the packet they labeled “evaporated cane juice” in the ingredients but according to plaintiff the labeled ingredient is evaporated cane juice is actually sugar not juice. However WWF has denied any wrongdoing but they agreed to give its customer settlement benefits. The total amount of the settlement fund is $800,000. The United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division has approved this lawsuit.
All those who have made any purchase of WWF Products with Evaporated Cane Juice between January 1, 2005 to April 19, 2013 for the consumption purpose but not for resale in the United States are eligible to file for the claim.
Now taking into consideration that who can make out the benefit from settlement, then those who have a valid proof of purchase will seek the reimbursement for 75% of their purchase price subject to a cap of $50 per household and those who don’t have any proof of purchase will receive a refund of 25% of the purchase price up to 5 products.
Following are the products which are associated with the lawsuit:
