$1.5M Settlement Finalized in Stevia In The Raw Class Action Lawsuit

- by

Santa Clara, CA: $1.5 million settlement has been reached in a consumer fraud class action lawsuit pending against Cumberland Packing Corp, the manufacturer of Stevia In The Raw.

Specifically, the allegations centered around claims that the label prominently states that Stevia In The Raw is a "100% Natural Zero Calorie Sweetener"when in fact it contains dextrose and maltodextrin which are derived from highly processed GMO corn.

The settlement will, in addition to paying damages to eligible class members, ensure that Cumberland stops using the phrases "100% natural"or "all natural"on packages or labels of its Stevia In The Raw products.

Eligible class members include all US residents who purchased Stevia In The Raw product for personal use between October 9, 2009, and July 1, 2014. The Stevia In the Raw package must have contained the terms "natural,""all natural"or "100% natural."Class Members may receive $2 for each package of Stevia In The Raw containing the terms "natural,""all natural"or "100% natural"they purchased up to a maximum of 8 packages.

You must be kidding! I am diabetic so I have used Stevia off and on for at least 3 Years, when I could afford it. Otherwise it is Sweet and low or the "yellow package'" they are cheaper. I have my blood sugar levels Checked 3 times a day and that means the levels sent to my doctor have not been accurate. This is just wrong
