Posted in News, Archive, News, Happenings

The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a public interest group, is suing Coca Cola for false health claims in regards to its VitaminWater beverage. The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California.

The CSPI stated Coke made false claims when marketing the VitaminWater, going far beyond the FDA's approvals, making it deceptive.

The group states the high levels of sugar in the drink promote obesity, diabetes and ot her health problems, offsetting the benefits from the vitamins in the drinks.
