If you’ve purchased a Celsius drink over the past seven years, you may be entitled to some cash.
The company was sued after promoting that it has no preservatives, but it does use citric acid, WJZ reported.
Celsius said citric acid is used as a flavor, not a preservative, but the company still settled the lawsuit.
The case was Hezi v. Celsius Holdings, which was heard in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. It was case number 1:21-CV-09892-VM.
The settlement means that if someone bought a Celsius drink or drink mix from Jan. 1 2015 to Nov. 23, 2022, then they are entitled to a payout.
If you have a receipt or other proof of purchase, you can get up to $250. But don’t worry. If you don’t have a receipt, you can still get $20.
The deadline to submit a claim is Feb. 1, according to a news release.

Earlier this month, Celsius was found to have breached a contract the company had with rapper Flo Rida, awarding him $82.6 million, The Associated Press reported.
The entertainer said the company violated an endorsement deal.
“Basically, I helped birth this company, and all we was looking for was some trustworthy people who acted as if they were family,” the entertainer told the AP. “And then when it comes down to the success of today, they just forgot about me.”
