Date: Nov 2019
All consumers who purchased in Quebec any Canada Dry Ginger Ale product marketed as “Made from Real Ginger” or “Fait à partir de vrai gingembre” at any time between January 14, 2016 and until November 11, 2020.
The Plaintiff alleged that Canada Dry used or published certain labelling and advertising material that contained false or misleading information regarding the ingredients of Canada Dry Ginger Ale soft drinks. Canada Dry completely denies any and all wrongdoing or liability.
The Defendants have agreed to make available the total amount of $650,000 (the “Total Settlement Cap”) to settle the class action. If the proposed settlement is approved, the amount of the Total Settlement Cap will be made available by Defendants to compensate Settlement Class Members who timely submit valid Claim Forms and to pay all costs and expenses related to the settlement (for more details, click on the Settlement Agreement available below in PDF).
To be eligible to make a claim you must provide your email address to the Claims Administrator at: www.canadadrysettlement.ca
Each Settlement Class Member may submit only one (1) Claim Form. Each Settlement Class Member who timely submits a valid Claim Form will receive payment from the Claims Administrator appointed by the Court of an equal amount up to a maximum of $7.50 per Settlement Class Member. Under the terms of the settlement, certain conditions may lead to Settlement Class Members with valid claims receiving less than this amount. For example, the compensation available to Settlement Class Members will be reduced proportionately among all Settlement Class Members with valid claims if the total amount of eligible claims exceeds the Total Settlement Cap minus the costs and expenses of the settlement described in the Settlement Agreement.
