Chipotle Mexican Grill Non-GMO Claims
September 2019: Plaintiffs moved for preliminary approval of a class-action settlement that would provide class members with cash awards capped at $2 for each product purchased. Class members with proof of purchase may receive cash awards for up to 10 purchases while class members without proof of purchase may receive awards for up to 5 purchases. The settlement agreement does not provide any injunctive relief.
2016: A class-action complaint was filed against Chipotle Mexican Grill for allegedly misleadingly representing that the items on its menus contain “only non-GMO ingredients” when, according to plaintiffs, meat and dairy products come from animals that were fed GMO feed and sodas contain corn syrup derived from GMO corn. (Schneider et al v. Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc., Case No. 16-cv-2200, N. D. CA.)
