Arizona Arnold Palmer Class Action Lawsuit Filed
Recently, a class action lawsuit has been filed against the Arizona beverage company. According to the lawsuit, the company’s Arnold Palmer drink does contain 15 calories per can, which is apparently proof that the “zero” calorie claim isn’t true.
Plaintiff, Kenneth Meyers of Michigan has filed the class action lawsuit because he asserts that Arizona Beverages violated federal and state consumer and business laws, in multiple states, by mislabeling the number of calories in the drink.
“Plaintiff is health-conscious and specifically chose the zero-calorie Arnold Palmer drinks instead of one of the other varieties because of its zero calories,” the class action lawsuit asserts. “Had he known it was not zero calories he would have purchased another product.”
Have you ever bought a drink or snack because its label says “zero calories?” However, you later found out that it contains calories? Let us know about it.
More About The FDA Guidelines
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines state that beverages can be labeled “zero-calorie” or “no calorie” ONLY if the product has fewer than five calories.
“Foods with less than five calories meet the definition of ‘calorie-free’ and any differences are dietarily insignificant’,” the agency adds.
