SAN DIEGO (CN) – World One Enterprises pushes its “One Natural Experience Coconut Water” with false claims about its being a “good source of electrolytes,” according to a federal class action.
Lead plaintiff Patrick Vitale says the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires that products must provide 10 to 19 percent of the daily value of a nutrient to be able to claim to be a “good source” of it. The coconut water only contains 0.5 percent of the daily value for the electrolyte sodium, and 5 percent of the daily value for the electrolyte magnesium, Vitale says.
He seeks an injunction and class damages for fraudulent business practices.
His lead counsel is Alan Mansfield with The Consumer Law Group, of San Diego.
