Jamba Juice Fruit and Vegetable Smoothies

In August 2018, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Jamba Juice for allegedly falsely advertising its fruit and vegetable smoothies as healthy by misrepresenting the actual ingredients. Specifically, the complaint claims that Jamba Juice misleadingly markets that smoothies contain whole fruits and vegetables when, according to plaintiffs, they actually contain juices, juice blends from concentrates, sherbet, and other ingredients. For example, the complaint claims that Jamba Juice markets that:

  • The Caribbean Passion Smoothie contains mangos, strawberries, peaches, oranges, and passion fruit when, according to plaintiffs, the smoothie actually contains two fruit juice blends (pear juice from a concentrate and white grape juice from a concentrate) and orange sherbet;
  • The Apple ‘n Greens Smoothie contains apples, kale, bananas, mangos, strawberries, and peaches when, according to plaintiffs, the smoothie actually contains a pear fruit juice blend and does not contain any apples or strawberries; and
  • The Aloha Pineapple Smoothie contains pineapple when, according to plaintiffs, the smoothie actually contains pineapple juice from a concentrate and pineapple sherbet.

In addition, the complaint alleges, among other things, that Jamba Juice misleadingly represents that the smoothies do not contain added sugars and additives when, according to plaintiffs, they do contain such ingredients. (Turner et al v. Jamba, Inc. and Jamba Juice Company, Case No. 18-cv-5168, N.D. Cal.)
