CSPI v. VitaminWater


The Center for Science in the Public Interest filed a class action lawsuit against The Coca-Cola Company alleging that it misrepresents the nutritional content and health benefits of its product, VitaminWater.

According to the plaintiffs, Coca-Cola's use of product names such as "Rescue," "Focus," "Balance," "Defense," "B-Relaxed," and "Power-C" and claims that the product was "specially formulated" to provide some health benefit were deceptive because of the product's sugar content, approximately 33 grams per 20 ounce bottle.
