Alexandra Axon, a Brooklyn woman, filed a class action lawsuit against Florida’s Natural in August this year. Richman Law Group filed the suit on behalf of Axon in August (2018), accusing Florida’s Natural Growers, Inc. and its parent company, Citrus World, Inc., of deceptive labeling and marketing.
According to the lawsuit: “Glyphosate is not necessary for successful planting, growing, or harvesting oranges; and is not a ‘Natural’ method of growing or harvesting oranges. Over the past several years, consumers have become increasingly conscious of the detrimental effects that glyphosate may have on human health and the environment. Reasonable consumers do not expect glyphosate to be found in truly natural orange juice.”
