Celsius Offering Payouts Up to $250 to Consumers Over False Claim
If you've purchased a Celsius drink at some point roughly over the past seven years, you could be eligible for up to a $250 payout.
Celsius energy drink has been advertising "no preservatives" since 2015.
According to a recent lawsuit, the drink's "no preservatives" claim is false and now the company is offering consumers payouts between $20 and $250.
According to newsbreak.com "the company argued the citric acid was used for flavor and not as a preservative, but they still decided to settle the lawsuit."
Reportedly, if you bought a Celsius drink or drink mix between January 1, 2015, and November 23, 2022, you're eligible for a payout.
If you have a receipt to prove you purchased a Celsius energy drink, you could be picking up $250.
If you can't provide a receipt or proof of purchase, you still may be able to get $20.
You can upload photos of receipts and scans over at celsiusclassactionsettlement.com.
