Poland Springs Accused of False Advertisement on Bottle Labels

By  | 

Maine, (AP) Another lawsuit accuses Poland Spring Water of deceiving customers by putting the words "100% natural spring water" on product labels.

The federal class-action lawsuit in Maine targets corporate parent Nestle Waters North America, which is accused of bottling water from wells and municipal sources that don't meet the federal definition of spring water.

A similar federal lawsuit was filed last month in Connecticut.

A Nestle Waters official called the new lawsuit filed a "copycat" that's likely based on the same "meritless claims" as the earlier lawsuit.
