March 2015: A federal judge preliminarily approved the settlement of this class-action lawsuit.
December 2014: Jamba Juice agreed to settle a false advertising class-action lawsuit filed against them in 2013. The complaint alleged that the company deceptively labeled its smoothie kits – including the Mango-a-go-go, Strawberries Wild, Caribbean Passion, Orange Dream Machine, and Razzmatazz flavors – as “all natural” when they actually contain non-natural, processed, and synthetic ingredients. According to the settlement terms, Jamba Juice agreed to stop describing the challenged products as “all natural” in marketing materials, including the packaging, advertisements, and company website. The settlement terms do not provide the class members with any monetary relief. (Lilly et al v. Jamba Juice Company and Inventure Foods, Inc., Case No. 13-cv-02998, N. D. CA.).
