A proposed settlement has been reached in a case involving Welch Foods Inc. ("Welch") alleging that the labeling of three 100% juice products with claims that they help support a healthy heart is misleading. Welch denies the allegations and has asserted various defenses that it believes are meritorious. The Settlement Class includes all persons in the United States who, between March 23, 2016 and October 1, 2021 (the "Class Period"), purchased in the United States, for household use and not for resale or distribution, Welch's 100% Grape Juice Concord Grape, Welch's 100% Juice Red Sangria, or Welch's 100% Black Cherry Concord Grape Juice (the "Class Products").
Each Class Member household that timely submits a valid approved Claim is entitled to compensation. Each timely, valid claimant will receive a payment based on the number of Class Products purchased during the Class Period. The amount of the Settlement Payment any individual receives will depend on both the total number of claims made, and each claimant's purchase history. Each household may submit only one claim form.
The Court has not yet approved the Settlement but has set a Final Approval Hearing for April 15, 2022, at 9:30 a.m., to determine whether the Settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate for the Class. The Court will also consider during that hearing whether and in what amount to award attorneys' fees and expenses to Class Counsel, and service awards to the Class Representative, which shall be paid from the Settlement Fund, along with Notice and Administration expenses currently estimated at $249,411. Prior to making that determination, the Court will set a deadline for Class Counsel to make a motion.
Class Counsel intend to seek an award of fees of 25% of the Settlement Fund (or $375,000), and reimbursement of case expenses of approximately $25,000, along with a service award for the Class Representative in the amount of $5,000. Any fees, expense reimbursements, and service award approved by the Court will be paid from the Settlement Fund.
