$10 Million K-Cups Settlement
Keurig has agreed to pay a $10 million settlement over claims that it misled consumers about its K-Cups being recyclable.
Plaintiffs allege that the packaging and advertising for these products misled consumers to believe that the Products were widely recyclable. Keurig denies all the Plaintiffs’ allegations, but is entering into this Settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation.
This $10 million settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing. The court has not decided who is right and who is wrong.
