If You Purchased Ritas Brand Products from January 1, 2018, through July 19, 2022, Then You May Be Entitled to a Payment from a Class Action Settlement.

This website provides information about a settlement reached in a class action lawsuit filed against Defendant Anheuser-Busch, LLC (“Anheuser-Busch” or “Defendant”) regarding Ritas Brand Products for alleged violations of false advertising laws for representations that Ritas Brand Products contain certain distilled spirits (such as tequila) and/or wine when they do not. The Defendant denies all allegations and has settled this lawsuit to avoid further litigation. The Court has not decided who is right.

You may be a “Settlement Class Member” if you are a person who purchased for personal consumption, and not for resale, any Ritas Brand Product in the U.S., from January 1, 2018, through July 19, 2022.

You may be an "Injunctive Relief Class Member" if you purchased for personal consumption, and not for resale, any Ritas Brand Product in the U.S., from January 1, 2018, through 60 days following the Effective Date (which is the date the Final Approval Order becomes final and non-appealable [typically 30 days after the entry of judgment unless an appeal is taken]). Injunctive relief means Anheuser-Busch will make certain changes to its marketing and advertising practices with respect to the Ritas Brand.
