Pepsi One and Diet Pepsi

March 2015: A federal judge granted Pepsico’s motion to dismiss this lawsuit finding, among other things, that the plaintiffs did not sufficiently plead causation and injury. The judge dismissed the complaint with prejudice (meaning that the plaintiffs cannot refile) finding that further amendment would be futile. (Riva et al v. Pepsico, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-2020, N. D. CA.)

February 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Pepsico alleging that the company failed to disclose its drinks – including Pepsi One and Diet Pepsi — contain dangerous levels of the carcinogen 4-Me and expose consumers to health risks. (Riva et al v. Pepsico, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-00340, S. D. CA.).
