Recently, Consumer Class Action Lawsuits were filed against Pepsi and Dr. Pepper by Sacks Weston Diamond, LLC. The Dr. Pepper lawsuit, along with the Pepsi lawsuit, state that the brands’ popular diet beverages are sweetened with aspartame, a non-caloric sweetener, rather than sugar. Due to the product’s use of the term “diet,” and its lack of calories, consumers reasonably believe that drinking Diet Dr. Pepper will assist in weight loss or management. Scientific evidence, however, demonstrates that this is wrong because nonnutritive sweeteners like aspartame interfere with the body’s ability to properly metabolize calories, leading to weight gain and increased risk of metabolic disease, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Marketing Diet Dr. Pepper and Diet Pepsi as “diet” is false, misleading, and unlawful.
