– A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving Tadin, Inc., a manufacturer of teas and herbal supplements. The proposed settlement requires Tadin to make certain modifications to the labelling and packaging of its product. This news is being distributed by Classaura.
On April 18th, 2014, Federal Judge Janis L. Sammartino preliminarily approved a settlement resolving a lawsuit between Tadin and a class representing consumers of Tadin products. The lawsuit claimed that Tadin made false and misleading claims, and that it breached express and implied warranties regarding its products.
