A class-action lawsuit against the creators of Canada Dry ginger ale has been settled for $200,000.

The advertising slogan “Made from Real Ginger” was misleading because the product did not have any ginger.

Victor Cardoso, the plaintiff, claimed that  he bought the product because he knew that ginger had medicinal benefits.

Cardoso and another plaintiff from Alberta have received $1,500 honorariums.

Ginger ale has long been considered a home remedy for an upset stomach, however dietitians say that the high sugar content in ginger ale may worsen your condition.

Due to the lawsuits, the company has decided to stop using the phrase “Made from Real Ginger” on package labels.
