“Super Herb” Beverage Maker Facing Putative Class Action Complaint
Rebbl Inc. faces a putative class action alleging its “super herb” beverages are falsely advertised and labeled because the claims made for their ingredients are “not supported by sound scientific evidence.” Richburg v. Rebbl Inc., No. 18-1674 (E.D.N.Y., filed March 16, 2018). The complaint alleges that beverages in Rebbl’s product line of “Elixirs” and “Proteins” contain several ingredients—turmeric, reishi, maca, matcha, ashwaganda, medium chain triglyceride oil and coconut milk—that the company falsely asserts can reduce stress and improve beauty, health or wellness. Claiming violations of New York’s General Business Law, breach of warranties, fraud and unjust enrichment, the plaintiff seeks class certification, injunctive relief, damages and attorney’s fees.
