Don’t be surprised if you notice more buttoned-up bottles of Naked Juice at a grocery store near you. The California-based brand owned by food giant Pepsico recently settled a class action lawsuit that alleged the products were not natural or naked at all, but loaded with genetically modified soy and artificial sweeteners, LA Weekly reported.
The company denied all of those allegations, the newspaper reported, but agreed to shell out $9 million to the group and remove the phrase “all-natural” from its bottles. Pepsico said it will hire an independent company to research and validate the non-GMO claims.
