Hain Celestial To Pay $7.5M Under Proposed 'Organic' Class-Action Settlement

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Proposed settlement between Hain and plaintiffs across two related suits will provide refunds to consumers who purchased products in California from the firm's Avalon Organics and JASON personal-care lines before it brought its formulations and labeling claims into compliance with the state's Organic Products Act. It does not cover a separate suit against Hain for alleged misleading "natural" JASON claims.
