PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A class action lawsuit has been filed against the parent company of the popular drink LaCroix for apparently falsely claiming the drink to be “100% natural.”
The firm Beaumont Costales, who filed the suit on behalf of Lenora Rice, claims that testing reveals that LaCroix contains a number of artificial ingredients, including linalool, which is used in cockroach insecticide.
“The plaintiff Rice, desiring a healthy, natural beverage, was led to purchase LaCroix sparkling water because of the claims made on its packaging, advertising and web site to be “innocent,” “naturally essenced,” “all natural,” and “always 100% natural.” However, LaCroix in fact contains ingredients that have been identified by the Food and Drug Administration as synthetic. These chemicals include limonene, which can cause kidney toxicity and tumors; linalool propionate, which is used to treat cancer; and linalool, which is used in cockroach insecticide,” the lawsuit states.
LaCroix contains dihydrogen monoxide as well, and that’s an extremely dangerous chemical!
