WILMINGTON, Del., April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving Leaf 123, Inc. (formerly known as Natrol, Inc.), the manufacturer of Laci LeBeau Super Dieter's Tea. The proposed settlement requires Leaf 123 to make certain modifications to the labeling and packaging of its products.
On April 16th, 2015, Federal Judge Brendan Linehan Shannon preliminarily approved a settlement resolving this lawsuit. The lawsuit claimed that Leaf 123 made false and misleading claims regarding its products. Leaf 123 denies these allegations and continues to stand by its products and advertising. The Court has not decided which side is right. Instead, the parties have decided to settle the case.
The proposed settlement requires Leaf 123 to change the labeling and packaging of its products. The required changes include adding warnings to the products and removing claims about the effectiveness of its products in reducing weight.
Class members, those who purchased one of more of Leaf 123's Products (listed below) for household or personal use between December 20, 2009, and April 16, 2015, may have their legal rights affected by this settlement and are advised to learn more about the proposed settlement and their options.
