BROOKLYN — A group of women is suing Mott's, alleging the defendant misled them about the flavors of a number of soft drinks.
Sharise Dalton, Nancy Bierly, Paula Leblanc, Jane Doe, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint May 19 in U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of New York against Mott's LLP, alleging deceptive and unfair trade practices, fraud, unjust enrichment, misleading representations and false advertising.
The plaintiff alleges Mott's products, namely key lime, black cherry, orange 'n cream and cream soda,are misleading in their statements about the sourcing of the flavors. The items marketed as Stewart's Fountain Classics are advertised as being naturally and artificially flavored when, in fact, they are only flavored artificially. Mott's' claims regarding the flavors are misleading to consumers.
The plaintiffs seek monetary damages, interest, treble and punitive damages, attorney fees, court costs and expenses and other just and proper relief. They are represented by attorney Spencer Sheehan of Sheehan & Associates PC in Great Neck.
