Made in USA Claims on Bigelow Teas

In July 2020, a class-action lawsuit was filed against R.C. Bigelow, Inc. for allegedly falsely advertising that several of its teas – including Earl Grey Black Tea, English Teatime Black Tea, Green Tea with Ginger, and Vanilla Chai Black Tea – are “manufactured in the USA” when, according to plaintiffs, the tea in the products was not grown or processed in the United States. (Banks et al v. R.C. Bigelow, Inc., Case No. 20-cv-6208, C.D. Cal.)
