Last month, June 2018, a consumer class action lawsuit was filed against Trader Joe’s alleging false advertising on its Alkaline Water. The Trader Joe’s Alkaline Water Lawsuit complaint states that that product is ionized to achieve the perfect balance, and implies that the Alkaline Water provides more hydration by placing plus signs next to the statement refresh and hydrate. In reality, however, Trader Joe’s cannot support these claims that the water is perfectly balanced, or that the Alkaline Water will provide more hydration than other water. Additionally, the Trader Joe’s Alkaline Water Class Action Lawsuit alleges that Trader Joe’s misleadingly markets the product as Alkaline Water + Electrolytes [that] is ionized to pH 9.5+, when the water does not have the represented pH (or measure of acidity and alkalinity) and is more acidic than represented.
