Supreme Court takes Coca-Cola to task over so-called fruit juice

WASHINGTON--Coca-Cola was taken to task by the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, with justices questioning whether a drink sold as fruit juice was the real thing.

The U.S. soft drinks giant is being sued by Californian fruit juice maker Pom Wonderful, who accused Coca-Cola of misleading consumers about its Minute Maid drink “Pomegranate Blueberry” that contains only 0.5 percent of the two fruits.

Pom Wonderful attorney Seth Waxman said consumers were being misled by Coca-Cola branding the drink — which was mostly apple or grape — as “Pomegranate Blueberry.”

Pom Wonderful, which sells 100-percent pomegranate juice, was suffering as a result of Coca-Cola's practices, Waxman argued.

A decision is expected in June.
