Calgary, AB: A man in Calgary, Alberta, has filed a potential class action against Coca Cola over allegations that it promoted its Vitamin Water beverage as a health drink, when in fact it contains over 30 grams of sugar, thereby misleading people into thinking the product is healthy.
According to the statement of claim, Calgary resident Larry Guilloux would not have bought the drink had he known how much sugar it contained. By way of comparison, a 591-millilitre bottle of Vitaminwater has 120 calories, while a regular 355-millilitre can of Coke contains 160 calories.
Guilloux's statement of claim takes issue with the name Vitaminwater and its labelling — a "nutrient enhanced water beverage" — and casts doubt on the health benefits of the drink.
