Last week, Naked Juice agreed to settle a very important class action lawsuit which accused the company of deceptive labeling.
The primary basis of the lawsuit stemmed from the company’s use of the words “All Natural” on products that contained Archer Daniels Midland’s Fibersol-2 (“a soluble corn fiber that acts as a low-calorie bulking agent”), fructooligosaccharides (an alternative sweetener), other artificial ingredients, such as calcium pantothenate (synthetically produced from formaldehyde), and genetically-modified soy.
Since these ingredients are either genetically-engineered or synthetically produced and do not exist in nature, it is completely misleading to consumers for these juices to claim to be “All Natural.”
As part of the settlement, Naked Juice, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, has agreed to remove the label “All Natural” from all of its juices and to pay a $9 million settlement to the class action group.
Without a question, this is a big, big win for consumers and is a huge step forward for more accurate labeling in the U.S. It also puts other food manufacturers on serious notice that GMOs are anything but natural and cannot be marketed as such.
Yet, as one digs deeper into the fine details of this lawsuit settlement, there are some extremely troubling details of which the general public is completely unaware.

Yes, they are often picked green and shipped long distances. Often they are refrigerated, which destroys their flavor and texture. But now researchers have discovered a genetic reason that diminishes a tomato’s flavor even if the fruit is picked ripe and coddled. CLICK LINK FOR THE REST OF THE ARTICLE

Think of Paul Revere & the Raiders and you invariably think of the Revolutionary War costumes, the Dick Clark connection, the TV show “Where The Action Is,” the 16 Magazine photo spreads of Mark Lindsay and his ponytail…and, oh yeah, they made some pretty great records, too.
“The hats and the tights and the goofy costumes — all that gets burned in peoples’ retinas, and it can be hard to remove that,” says frontman Lindsay.
Phil “Fang” Volk, bassist for the first main lineup, agrees.
“I don’t think we ever got the street cred we deserve,” Volk said. “You take a band that played for years on the garage circuit. Then you put them on TV, and it changes the whole image.”
