Seagram's "Ginger" Ale Settlement

Stephanie LairComment

In February of this year, Seagram’s, a Coca-Cola company, agreed to pay $2.45 million to resolve a false advertising suit brought against them in December 2016. The lawsuit claimed that Seagram’s Ginger Ale was deceptively advertised as “Made with Real Ginger” when the beverage doesn’t contain any ginger at all. Instead the drink is flavored with high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, and a chemical flavoring compound designed to mimic the taste of real ginger.

Consumers who file a claim are eligible for $4 to $80 per household depending on the amount of purchased product claimed and proof of purchase provided. [Alliteration intended] The class includes consumers who bought Seagram’s Ginger Ale between April 1, 2013 and June 13, 2019 – 2-liter bottles, 20-ounce bottles, 12-pack or 12-ounce cans, or a 10-pack of 7.5-ounce cans are all considered single units of the product. Claimants without proof of purchase can claim up to 13 units per household to receive a payment of $10.40. Claimants with proof of purchase can claim up to 100 units for $80 as long as proof of purchase is provided for at least 87 units.
