L

OS ANGELES, June 9 /PRNewswire/ — POM Wonderful and TX-based Fresherized Foods, Inc. announced today a settlement to the lawsuit filed by POM Wonderful against Fresherized Foods on September 22, 2008. The lawsuit was filed against Fresherized Foods for false advertising and unfair competition and alleged that Fresherized Foods sold juice labeled 100% pomegranate juice that allegedly did not contain 100% pomegranate juice. Fresherized Foods exited the pomegranate juice business in 2008.



“We’re pleased that we have been able to reach this agreement with Fresherized Foods,” said Matt Tupper, president of POM Wonderful.



POM Wonderful only uses Wonderful variety pomegranates grown in its Central California orchards. POM Wonderful’s management of the entire juicing process from tree to bottle guarantees that each bottle of POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice contains 100% pure pomegranate juice providing consumers with an authentic flavor and a consistent dose of naturally-occurring polyphenol antioxidants. In an effort to uncover the health benefits of the Wonderful variety, POM Wonderful has invested nearly $30 million in scientific research. This research is performed by renowned scientists at the top facilities in the world and has resulted in 13 published and peer-reviewed clinical studies that indicate POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice may promote optimum human health, particularly in regards to the heart and prostate.
