Coca Cola's Vitamin water may mislead cosumers: U.S. court

08-06-2010 10:12 BJT

Bottles of Coca-Cola's Vitamin water are sold in a store in New York, the United States, Aug. 4, 2010. Judge John Gleeson of the U.S. District Court in Brooklyn said the health claims on some Vitamin water bottles may be in violation of FDA regulations since the drink "achieves its nutritional content solely through fortification that violates FDA policy", Time Magazine reported. Gleeson also ruled that the claim that the Vitamin water name misleads consumers is potentially actionable, since that key third ingredient, sugar, is conveniently absent from the title, the report said. (Xinhua/Wu Kaixiang)
