Health-Ade Kombucha Faces PFAS Suit

Like an increasing number of companies, Health-Ade has been hit with a lawsuit challenging the health claims of products allegedly found to contain PFAS. It is facing a putative consumer class action in the Southern District of New York alleging that Health-Ade falsely markets its kombucha as healthy when the products allegedly contain PFAS. The products’ labels include phrases such as “happy gut” and “organic.” The plaintiff used results from “independent laboratory testing” of five different Health-Ade products for PFAS to support her claim that the products contain PFAS (and therefore pose a health risk). She asserts New York General Business Law and unjust enrichment claims on behalf of nationwide and New York putative classes.
