Have you bought a Celsius drink in the past 7 years? Here’s the scoop on the class action lawsuit.
A class action lawsuit against Celsius has been settled.
The popular beverage company, Celsius, has found themselves in hot water for false advertising. A recent class action lawsuit, Hazi vs. Celsius Holdings, Inc., alleged that the beverage company mislabeled its products as having “No Preservatives.” It turns out that the drinks contained citric acid which Celsius claimed was for flavor only.
Instead of hashing it out in court, the two parties decided to settle. Though the court may not have ruled in anyone’s favor, consumers are still entitled to a cash payout. 💵
Do you qualify to receive a cash settlement from the Celsius lawsuit?
You qualify to be a Class Member if you can answer “yes” to ALL of the following questions:
- Are you a United States Citizen?
- Have you purchased Celsius for personal or household consumption (not for resale or distribution)?
- Did you purchase your Celsius drink between January 1, 2015 and November 23, 2022?
- Did you purchase one or more of the Celsius beverages listed below?
- Celsius Live Fit
- Celsius Heat
- Celsius BCAA + Energy
- Celsius with Stevia
- Celsius On-The-Go Powdered Drink
- Flo Fusion Powdered Drink
If you said “yes” to all of those questions, you’re entitled to a cash payout! 💰
How much money are you eligible to receive from the Celsius lawsuit?
If you qualified as a Class Member, you’re entitled to a cash award. For every single canned beverage you purchased, you’re entitled to $1 per can. If you purchased a 14-pack of the Celsius-On-The-Go or Flow Fusion powdered drinks, you’re entitled to $5 per pack. The maximum amount you can claim WITH RECEIPTS is $250. If you can no longer find your receipt, you may be able to get a cash award of $20 per household.
If you shopped in-person at a grocery store, you may not be able to find your receipt. We recommend you check to see if you’ve purchased Celsius drinks online. Places like Amazon may have your order history that proves you’re entitled to a higher cash award.
