VizzySettlement.com: What You Need to Know About the Vizzy Hard Seltzer Class Action Lawsuit
If you're a fan of Vizzy Hard Seltzer, you may want to take note of a recent class action settlement that could potentially affect you. A proposed settlement has been reached in a case alleging that Vizzy Hard Seltzer products were unlawfully and misleadingly labeled as "with antioxidant vitamin C from acerola superfruit."
According to the settlement agreement, Molson Coors Brewing Company USA LLC, the parent company of Vizzy, has agreed not to use the phrase "with antioxidant vitamin C from acerola superfruit" in connection with the labeling and marketing of its products. Additionally, Molson Coors has agreed to pay $9.5 million into a Settlement Fund to cover Valid Claims, attorneys' fees and expenses, incentive awards, and class administration and other costs.
If you purchased any Vizzy Hard Seltzer product in the United States between January 1, 2020, and March 10, 2023, except for the purpose of resale, you are considered a Settlement Class Member. To be eligible to receive a Cash Payment under the settlement, you must submit a Claim Form by June 6, 2023. The Cash Payment amounts will vary depending on the type and quantity of Vizzy Hard Seltzer products you purchased, with a maximum Cash Payment of $15.00 for those who cannot provide valid Proof of Purchase. The minimum Cash Payment per household will be $6.00, but the actual amount may be reduced pro rata depending on the number of Valid Claims.
It's important to note that Molson Coors denies any wrongdoing and contends that the label claims are true. Nonetheless, the parties have agreed to settle the cases with no admission of guilt or wrongdoing from Molson Coors. If you're a Settlement Class Member and do nothing, you'll receive the benefit of labeling changes but will not receive any Cash Payment. However, if you opt-out of the settlement, you'll be excluded from the lawsuit and will not receive any Cash Payment, but you'll retain the right to pursue a separate lawsuit.
If you're not sure whether you're a Settlement Class Member or have any questions about the settlement, you can contact the Claim Administrator at Vizzy Settlement Administrator, 1650 Arch Street, Suite 2210, Philadelphia, PA 19103 or class counsel at Gutride Safier LLP, 100 Pine Street, Suite 1250, San Francisco, CA 94111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're unhappy with any aspect of the settlement, you have the option to file an objection by the May 19, 2023 deadline or attend the Fairness Hearing on July 12, 2023, at 2 pm PT, to speak in court about the settlement. However, if you object to any aspect of the settlement, you must submit a written objection by the May 19, 2023, deadline.
It's important to note that the Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement, and Cash Payments will only be sent to Settlement Class Members if the Court approves the Settlement. If there are any appeals, Cash Payments will not be made until the appeals are resolved, and the Settlement becomes effective.
In conclusion, if you purchased Vizzy Hard Seltzer products between January 1, 2020, and March 10, 2023, you may be eligible for a Cash Payment under the proposed settlement. To receive a Cash Payment, you must submit a Claim Form by June 6, 2023. However, if you're not interested in receiving a Cash Payment, you can do nothing and still benefit from the labeling changes. If you have any questions or concerns about the settlement, you can contact the Claim Administrator or class counsel. It's also important to note that the Court still has to approve the Settlement, and if there are any appeals, Cash Payments will not be made until the appeals are resolved.
