Tetley Tea Faces Consumer Fraud Class Action Lawsuit over Advertising Health Claims


Campbell, CA: Tetley Tea is facing a federal consumer fraud class action lawsuit over allegations it falsely advertises the health benefits of its tea products, specifically that they are an "excellent" or "natural" source of antioxidants.

The lawsuit states, "Tetley utilizes improper antioxidant, nutrient content, and health claims that have been expressly condemned by the FDA in numerous enforcement actions and warning letters" to other companies that made similar antioxidant claims, such as Unilever's Lipton Tea.

The lawsuit is brought on behalf of all consumers in California who purchased Tetley Tea's Classic Blend Black Tea, British Blend Black Tea, Pure Green Tea, Iced Tea Blend Tea, and/or Iced Tea Mix Tea within the last four years.

Plaintiffs are seeking damages, restitution and more for alleged claims of unlawful, unfair and fraudulent business acts and practices; misleading and deceptive advertising; untrue advertising; and violation of the Magnuson-Moss Act and Beverly-Song Act.
