US: Cadbury Schweppes under fire over Snapple ingredients
Cadbury Schweppes has been sued for 'misleading' consumers by labelling its Snapple drinks as 'all natural'.
The US$100m suit, filed in Manhattan federal court, alleged that the drinks contained high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), not 'all natural' ingredients as the bottle suggested.
The law suit explained: "HFCS does not exist in nature and is not 'minimally processed.' Describing HFCS as an 'all natural' ingredient is deceptive and unfair to consumers and competitors."
