Red Bull gives you wings!  The famous energy drink company has advertised with this catchy slogan for more than a decade. Its strongly caffeinated drinks are now found in nearly every grocery store and convenience store in the nation.  Despite the company’s ability to sponsor manned “space jumps” and other high-octane stunts, it has recently been discovered that the drink does not, figuratively speaking, give you wings.  Instead, a class action lawsuit was filed in 2013 against the company for falsely advertising the drinks’ abilities to boost performance and reaction speed.  On October 13, 2014, the two sides finally reached a settlement in the amount of $13 million.

According to the settlement agreement, Americans who purchased Red Bull between 2002 and 2012 are eligible to receive financial compensation.  There are two options for compensation.  The first is $10, and the second is a free 4-pack of Red Bull.  Eligible claimants are required to submit their application before March 1, 2015 in order to receive compensation.  Many people are puzzled at this arbitrary figure of $13 million and also that there is no obvious way to prove the purchase or consumption of Red Bull in such a large time frame.  Also complicating the issue is the fact that the company says it sold 5.387 billion cans worldwide last year.
