February 2017: A state judge preliminarily approved a settlement of a false advertising class-action lawsuit against Drew’s LLC. The June 2016 complaint alleges that the company falsely markets salad dressings and quick marinades as “All Natural” when they actually contain synthetic ingredients.
According to the settlement terms, class members may receive $0.50 for each product purchased. Class members without proof of purchase may receive awards for up to 3 products (a total of $1.50 per household) while class members with proof of purchase may receive awards for up to 20 products (a total of $10 per household). In addition, any class member may receive a $3 coupon that can be used to purchase a case containing six 12-ounce bottles of any Drew’s salad dressing or marinade from Drew’s website. The company also agreed to no longer advertise any product as “All Natural.”
A final fairness hearing is scheduled for May 16, 2017. (Tovar et al v. Drew’s LLC, Case No. 16-L-313, Circuit Court of St. Clair County, Illinois)
