Red Bull has used the slogan, “Red Bull gives you wings” for more than two decades but after a class action lawsuit where customers say it did not give them wings the company agreed to pay more than $13 million in a settlement.
Red Bull says in its marketing the drink can improve concentration and reaction speeds, but the plaintiff in the case said the claims were false and it lacked scientific support.
If the proposed settlement is passed by the US District Court of the Southern District of New York, where a hearing will take place in March of 2015, Red Bull will be required to pay $6.5 million into the settlement fund within a week.
The settlement will reimburse customers of Red Bull who were disappointed that the energy drink did not live up to its claims. Customers will either be able to get a check for $10 or a voucher for $15 worth of Red Bull.
