Any consumer who bought a Naked Juice between Sept. 27, 2007 and Aug. 17, 2013 could receive up to $75 from the settlement with proof of purchase.

Well, there is a slight positive side to the lawsuit that's been swirling around Naked Juice since 2010: if you bought a Naked Juice between Sept. 27, 2007 and Aug. 17, 2013, you could be entitled to a (small) chunk of Naked Juice's $9 million settlment. 

The Huffington Post reports that a new website for the class action suit has been built, in order to give back to consumers who took Naked Juice's health claims — like "100% Juice" or "All Natural Fruit" — to be true. That means any consumer who bought a Naked Juice in that time frame could receive up to $75 from the settlement with proof of purchase (those without proof could get up to $45). 

PepsiCo, the parent company, is still fighting back on the lawsuit, and plans to keep using the "non-GMO" label. The company says that the juice does in fact use non-GMO ingredients; however, the lawsuit alleges that the juices contain genetically modified soy.
