If you bought at least one Red Bull between January 1, 2002 and October 3, 2014, the company owes you a $10 check or $15 worth of free Red Bull Products. It's all due to a $13 million lawsuit the beverage company has decided to settle with Benjamin Careathers.

Careathers, a Red Bull drinker, claims that the drink maker misled him and other consumers with its slogan “Red Bull gives you wings." He says the company advertised some of the benefits of drinking Red Bull include increased performance, concentration and reaction speed. Of course, none of this was ever proven or backed up by scientific evidence.

Bevnet.com quotes the lawsuit as determining:

A 7 oz. cup of drip coffee contains approximately 115 to 175 milligrams of caffeine, depending on the blend, and a 12 oz. serving of Starbucks coffee costs $1.85 and would contain far more caffeine than a regular serving of Red Bull. An 8.4 oz. can of Red Bull contains 80 milligrams of caffeine.

To claim your $10 cash refund, all you need to do is register online at the link below before March 2, 2015. Again, you don't need any proof of purchase. See the link for further details.

 


Speaking of food and drink news you might not know about, were you aware that Arby's has a secret menu? And on this secret menu is a meat mountain? Now you do. (Sorry, the meat mountain won't give you wings, either.)
