Nestlé Waters Denies Lawsuit’s Claim That Poland Spring Is Not Spring Water

August 20, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
A federal lawsuit filed in the Connecticut district charges that Nestlé Waters NA’s Poland Spring Water is not actually spring water but is pumped from ordinary well water in Maine and doesn’t meet the FDA definition of spring water. The suit includes claims for breach of contract and fraud and asks unspecified damages for violations of state laws of New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts. The suit says at least one of the company’s largest volume groundwater collection sites supplying as much as 99 percent of Poland Spring Water is near a current or former refuse pit, landfill or petroleum dump site. Nestlé Waters says the suit is “without merit and an obvious attempt to manipulate the legal system for personal gain,” adding that “Poland Spring is 100 percent spring water.”
