According to an ABC Eyewitness News report published earlier today by WTVD-TV Raleigh-Durham from reporters Diane Wilson and Tonya Simpson, Utz Quality Foods has agreed to pay more than $1 million to settle claims the company engaged in false advertising.
According to the report, the lawsuit accused the company of labeling products that contained chemical, synthetic or processed ingredients “all natural.”
Utz denied the allegations, but agreed to pay $1.2 million to settle the class action suit.
Anyone who purchased certain Utz or Bachman brand products between 2010 and 2019 can reportedly be eligible for a refund of $2 per item. Claims are limited to a maximum of 10 items, it is said – and only one claim can be submitted per household. No proof of purchase is required. The deadline to submit claims is July 28, 2019.
