Pinkberry settles class action lawsuit

AP News reports:

A Los Angeles-based company known for its light deserts is shelling out some heavy cash to settle a class action filed by disgruntled customers.Pinkberry chief executive Ron Graves said Thursday that the frozen yogurt chain had settled the suit over whether its product was, technically, frozen yogurt.

Pinkberry acknowledged that it didn’t follow state guidelines requiring frozen yogurt to be made off-site, not in stores. Graves said the product is now mixed in a dairy.

As part of the settlement, Pinkberry will give $750,000 to two Southern California charities.
