www.wgpomsettlement.com – Welch’s White Grape Juice Blend Class Action Lawsuit Settlement

 

A class action lawsuit is pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against Welch’s for claims that the Welch’s 100% Juice White Grape Pomegranate flavored juice blend was advertised and marketed in a deceptive way to customers.  According to the settlement notice Welch’s marketed the White Grape Juice in a way that made consumers believe there was more pomegranate juice than there actually was.  In other words the customers thought they were getting a lot of pomegranate juice when they only got a little. 

The case is entitled Courtney v. Welch Foods, Inc., SA CV 10-01427-AHM and includes anyone who purchased Welch’s 100% Juice White Grape Pomegranate Flavored Juice Blend from 07-01-07 to the present time.  If a class member fills out a Refund Claim Form and provides a receipt of purchase they will receive a full cash refund of the retail purchase price for all WGP Product purchases under the terms of the Welch’s White Grape Juice Blend Class Action Lawsuit Settlement.  All claim forms must be in by December 31, 2011 and there is no limit to the amount of claims if you have a receipt.

If you do not have a receipt you can still make a claim for a coupon for a free Welch’s 100% Juice, 64 ounce juice product (limited one claim per household).  These settlement coupons will only be offered until 12-31-11 or until 15,000 of the coupons have been issued, which ever comes first.

Welch’s will also offer discount coupons, which may be redeemed by anyone, without proof of purchase.  These coupons will be made available in Sunday newspapers.  The total value Welch’s is committing to honor through these coupons is not less than $30,000,000.

Welch’s will also provide $350,000 worth of food and juice products to charities as part as the settlement terms.
