Healthy Beverage’s Steaz Iced Green Tea and Energy Drinks

May 2017: A federal judge granted Healthy Beverage’s motion to dismiss finding that plaintiffs failed to plausibly claim they relied on misrepresentations and failed to state a claim. The dismissal was with prejudice.

2013: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Healthy Beveraage alleging that it unlawfully and misleadingly labels products – including Steaz Iced Green Tea with Blueberry Pomegranate and Steaz Organic Energy Drink Orange – as containing “organic evaporated cane juice” when, according to the complaint, they contain sugar. (An amended complaint was filed in 2016.) (Swearingen et al v. Healthy Beverage, LLC and The Healthy Beverage Company, Case No. 13-cv-04385, N. D. CA.).
