Pepsi forks over $9 million settlement, agrees to stop calling Naked Juice 'natural'

 According to new reports, PepsiCo has not only agreed to pay out a $9 million settlement as part of the case, but has also relented from labeling its juice products as "all natural," pending further clarification by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the appropriate use of this widely-misunderstood term.

Back in 2011, plaintiffs filed a class-action lawsuit against Pepsi for labeling Naked Juice as being "all natural," despite the fact that many of the products in this brand category contain added synthetic vitamins and other questionable ingredients. According to the Associated Press (AP), plaintiffs had accused Pepsi of even adding a synthetic fiber material made by Big Ag corporation Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) into some types of Naked Juice, an allegation that Pepsi ultimately did not deny.

If people were honorable, and not sex addicts, they wouldn't be drinking something called NAKED JUICE anyway. In fact, good people would not even shop in stores that sold it, just 'cause of its name. So, it's the peoples' fault that they get what they deserve. Of course, Pepsi is still guilty for tempting the people.
