Consumers who purchased Celsius energy drink within the past seven years may be entitled to a payout of up to $250 due to a class action lawsuit against the company. The deadline to file a claim is February 13, 2023, and the purchase period is between January 1, 2015, and November 23, 2022, according to a report by The Krazy Coupon Lady on January 19, 2023.
To be eligible for a payout, one must be a resident of the United States who purchased the drink for personal or household consumption and have proof of purchase, such as a receipt. Without proof of purchase, the payout is limited to $20 per household. The amount of the payout is calculated based on the number of products purchased, according to The Krazy Coupon Lady.
The company was sued for allegedly claiming that its products had “no preservatives” on the label when they did contain citric acid. The company claimed that citric acid was included in its products solely for taste, not to extend their shelf life. However, they decided to settle.
If the total approved claims exceed the funds available for distribution, payouts will be decreased. If there is money left over, payouts may be increased up to double the original claimed amount. Claim forms can be submitted online or by mail before February 13th. The form of payment is not specified but could include PayPal or Venmo.
Based on a report by The US Sun on January 21, 2023, eligible products for the payout include: Celsius beverages, Celsius Heat, Celsius BCAA+Energy, Celsius with Stevia, Celsius On-The-Go, and Flo Fusion powdered drinks. These are the products consumers can claim if they have purchased them within the past seven years. The deadline for filing a claim is approaching, and it’s important to file soon to be eligible for the payout.
