Nestle Waters North America, Inc. is facing a potential class action in New York regarding its Poland Spring brand raspberry lime sparkling water. The lawsuit claims that the water contains very little, if any, real raspberry and lime ingredients.
The lawsuit claims that consumers could reasonably believe that the water would contain an actual amount of raspberry and lime as depicted on their labeling. The lawsuit also states that the labels “taste the real” display would also reasonably lead a consumer to believe there would be actual real raspberry and lime as opposed to the actual artificial ingredients.
The proposed class would be made up of all New York purchasers of the water. The lawsuit is Brandy Oldrey v. Nestle Waters North America Inc., Case No.: 7-21-cv-03885, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
