PepsiCo’s Naked Juices Mislead Consumers, Says Lawsuit

PepsiCo misleadingly markets Naked Juices as predominantly containing high-value ingredients such as acai berry, blueberries, kale, and mango, when in fact the predominant ingredient in the product line is usually cheap, nutrient-poor apple juice, according to a lawsuit filed today. The nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest says that “NO SUGAR ADDED” claims on Naked labels imply that the products are low in sugar, when in fact, the drinks are high in sugar. What’s more, the company fails to prominently disclose that the drinks are “not a low-calorie food,” as required by the Food and Drug Administration.
