Class-action lawsuit filed against Starbucks for not putting mango in its mango fruit juice

Customers from Starbucks Corp have been angered by the fact that there is no mango in the coffee chain’s Refresher beverage. The have filed a class-action lawsuit in the US courts, claiming that Starbucks' Mango Dragonfruit, Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade, Pineapple Passionfruit, Pineapple Passionfruit Lemonade and other Refresher drinks lack these very fruits.

In a request for dismissal, Starbucks claimed that reasonable customers wouldn’t have expected a product called Mango Dragonfruit to have any actual mango in it, but this was not honored by a judge.

The case was first filed by Joan Kominis and Jason McAllister in August 2022, claiming that consumers purchased the products and paid a premium price based upon their reliance on Starbucks’ naming of the products.
