Case Summary:

The plaintiffs in this lawsuit allege that Millennium mislabeled their GT’s Kombucha products by

  • Using the term “antioxidant” on the labels of the products despite the fact that the products do not contain antioxidants,
  • Labeling and advertising GT’s Enlightened Kombucha and Enlightened Synergy products as non-alcoholic when the fermentation of the products allegedly causes the products to contain more than the amount of alcohol permitted for non-alcoholic beverages, and
  • Understating the sugar content of the products and failing to include added sugar as a listed ingredient despite the fact that the products allegedly contain sugar as an added ingredient.

The plaintiffs also allege that Whole Foods violated the law by reselling the GT’s Kombucha products allegedly mislabeled by Millennium.
