Consumer Watchdog To Sue Three Food Giants Over “Natural” Product Claims

January 8, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A consumer food safety watchdog is getting ready to sue several big food companies over their “natural” product claims. According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Kraft’s Crystal Light “Natural” lemonade and iced tea mixes “contain several decidedly unnatural ingredients”, including the artificial sweeteners aspartame and acesulfame-potassium, several artificial colors, a factory-produced texturizer, and the controversial preservative BHA. Notifications of pending litigation were also sent to Smart Balance about "unauthorized and illegal claims" on its Blended Butter Sticks and Abbott Laboratories for “deceptive and misleading practices” regarding its Ensure Nutrition Shakes, CSPI said.
