An Update on the Naked Juice and Kashi Class Action Lawsuits

Written by Max Goldberg on November 29, 2012. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

For those who don’t know, both Naked Juice and Kashi are facing class action lawsuits.

Naked Juice is being sued for using GMOs and synthetic substances in its “Non-GMO” and “All-Natural” products. To read more about this case, click HERE.

Kashi is being sued for using hazardous substances, including uranium by-products, in its “All-Natural” products. To read more about this case, click HERE.

Since a lot of people have been asking for an update on these two cases, I decided to speak with Yve Golan, a lawyer who involved in both the Naked Juice and Kashi class action lawsuits, at the recent Natural Products Expo East trade show in Baltimore.

As she mentions in the video, if you want to participate in these cases, she can be contacted via her website.

It is also very important to point out that PepsiCo (parent company of Naked Juice) donated $2.5 million to defeat Proposition 37, California’s GMO-labeling initiative, and Kellogg’s donated close to $800,000 to defeat Proposition 37.

Needless to say, these are two of the many companies that I am boycotting because they have completely betrayed the American consumer by fighting against GMO-labeling.

  3. How do we get this information out to even more people, I heard about kashi using unnatural ingredients etc a couple years ago and have stopped buying the brand ever since, but they have such a presence In the health food stores and are one of the few ” natural” brands the regular commercial markets carry. Everyone thinks they are what they say they are. How can this be?

  4. Hi Haley,

    It is a challenge that we face because mainstream media is not too interested in publicizing this information. Why? Pepsi, Kellogg’s and others are such big advertisers. Therefore, it falls on all of us to educate our friends and family as to what is really happening.

    From what I hear, these boycotts we are doing against many of these brands are having a real impact — sales are down — and the companies facing these class action lawsuits are very concerned. So, it is just a matter of everyone sharing this information as much as possible.

    Live well,

  5. Thank you for posting this, Max. I regularly gave the Naked Juice product to my late son for several months while he was battling cancer, thinking he was getting natural juice to help build his immune system back up after chemo.
    This really angers me and I definitely want to be part of the class action suit. I live in AZ. I hope we are part of this as well.

  10. I have been drinking this product safely for over a year. I have also been having serious issues with reflux and gastroenterology problems. I have had to have several procedures done and I have been placed on medication at this point to help …now I’m wondering if the naked juice as a result of my problems. I will be notifying my doctor immediately. I definitely want to be a part of this lawsuit.

  11. I don’t think any of the ‘NOT natural’ ingredients in Naked Juice are dangerous.
    I’m not an avid buyer of organic food.
    BUT, I am a believer in allowing consumers to make an INFORMED choice.
    Misleading labeling and questionable marketing methods are what has made consumers so suspicious about the food industry. One would think giants like Pepsi-Co would know better, but alas…

  13. Hi Giselle,

    You’ll have to speak with your doctor. There is nothing that you can do about it now and if it were my wife, I would have her stop drinking it immediately.
