Mona Vie Juices
May 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Mona Vie for allegedly deceptively advertising its juices, such as MonaVie Active, MonaVie Essential, MonaVie Pulse. Among other things, the complaint alleges that the company promises its juices will provide a variety of health benefits – including increased energy and improved joint health – without scientific proof to support such claims. In addition, plaintiffs claim that the company fails to warn consumers that the juices contain ingredients – such as arsenic and lead – that could cause health problems. (Buhler et al v. Mona Vie, Inc. and MonaVie, LLC, Case No. 14-cv-80723, S. D. FL.).
