Coca-Cola Co. Provides Legal Update on Suit Alleging Misleading Beverage Label

Reversing a decision of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the U.S. Supreme Court held the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) does not preclude a claim brought by a competitor under the Lanham Act alleging the labeling of a juice beverage is deceptive and misleading. POM Wonderful L.L.C. sued the Coca-Cola Co. alleging a juice blend sold by Coca-Cola's Minute Maid Division is deceptively and misleading mislabeled as 'pomegranate blueberry' when it actually contains only 0.3% pomegranate juice and 0.2% blueberry juice. POM brought its suit under § 43 of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. §1125, which allows one competitor to sue another alleging unfair competition arising from false or misleading product descriptions. The district court granted partial summary judgment to Coca-Cola on POM's Lanham Act claim, holding the FDCA, 21 U.S.C. §§331, 343, and its regulations-which forbid the misbranding of food-preclude challenges to the name and label of a product. The Ninth Circuit affirmed in relevant part, concluding Congress entrusted food-labeling regulation to the Food and Drug Administration. The Supreme Court granted certiorari. The Supreme Court reversed, holding a private party may bring a Lanham Act claim challenging a food label that is regulated by the FDCA. The Lanham Act was enacted to regulate commerce by protecting trademarks and prohibiting the deceptive or misleading use of marks. The FDCA is designed to protect the health and safety of the public at large by prohibiting the misbranding of food and beverages. The Court held that no textual provision in either statute reveals an intent to bar unfair competition claims arising from food labeling. Furthermore, Congress indicated it did not intend the FDCA's express preemption of some state law claims to preclude requirements arising from other federal sources. The Supreme Court concluded the Lanham Act and the FDCA complement each other in the federal regulation of misleading labels. Therefore, the Court held competitors may bring Lanham Act claims that challenge food and beverage labels regulated by the FDCA. Accordingly, the Court reversed the Ninth Circuit's judgment and remanded the case for further proceedings.

Coca-Cola Launches New Coke Life with Fewer Calories, But Still High in Sugar

Coca-Cola launched a new drink in Britain called Coke Life, which the company says uses natural sugar substitute Stevia and hence has fewer calories. Coke says the new drink reduces the sugar and calorie intake by a third, and is based on a drink that was tested first in Argentina and Chile last year. It Coca-Cola's first launch of a drink after it last unveiled Coke Zero in 2006, which is also a low-calorie drink targeted at men. The drink with bright green branding will contain 89 calories as compared to the 139 calories that are in a standard can of Coke. The calorie reduction comes from the use of Stevia, a plant native to South America that contains a sweetening compound used to flavor the new Coke product. Health advocates have warned against the new drink saying that despite the reduced calories the drink still contains 4 teaspoons of sugar, nearly a quarter of a child's recommended daily intake.
