What’s The Frontera/Salpica Settlement About
Plaintiffs contend that Defendant’s marketing and labeling of its Products is misleading. Defendant contends that its Product Labeling is accurate, denies making any misrepresentations and, therefore, denies any liability. It also denies that Plaintiffs or any other members of the Settlement Class have suffered injury or are entitled to monetary or other relief. Defendant also denies that this case can be certified as a class action, except for purposes of Settlement.
Plaintiffs contend that the Defendant caused people to purchase the Products who would not otherwise have done so and/or caused people to pay more for the Products as a result of the advertising or Labeling. The complaint seeks to recover, on behalf of a class of all purchasers, other than re-sellers, retailers or distributors, damages as a result of the alleged misrepresentations.
For purposes of Settlement only, the Court has conditionally certified a Settlement Class which is defined as all Persons who, between September 1, 2011 and September 11, 2017, purchased, in the United States, for personal use and not resale.
