K-Cup Settlement, Get Up to $36 If Eligible
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about the labeling and advertising of K-Cup single serving coffee pods labeled as recyclable. Plaintiffs allege that the packaging and advertising for these products misled consumers to believe that the Products were widely recyclable. Keurig denies all the Plaintiffs’ allegations, but is entering into this Settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation.
This K-Cup settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Keurig. The court has not decided who is right and who is wrong.
