Lyons Magnus, a beverage and cocoa-based company, has opted for an out-of-court settlement of $3.5 million in a lawsuit claiming that the company did not comply with its legal and ethical responsibilities regarding fair marketing practices. The lawsuit alleges that the company failed to provide information about certain products contaminated with bacteria that can harm consumers health. Although the lawsuit does not require consumers to provide proof of purchase, they still need to submit a valid claim before February 9, 2024.

The website for the Specialty Drink class action settlement offers all the information about a list of products that contain the dangerous Cronobacter Sakazakii bacteria. Surprisingly, this vital information is not mentioned on the product labels. The CDC states that Cronobacter infections are rare but can be extremely harmful to newborn babies under 2 months old with weakened immune systems.
