Summary:
Describes Federal statutes that regulate beverage labels. Covers the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA), which outlines public health requirements for beverage labels reflecting different ingredients of juice and prohibits misbranded food and beverages when labels are false and misleading; and the Lanham Act, which regulates unfair competition, and prohibits misleading labels and advertisements that may hurt a competitor's business and/or goodwill. Examines Pom Wonderful v. Coca-Cola , which addressed interaction of FDCA and the Lanham Act to see whether a business can seek relief against the misleading juice label of a competitor in court. Summarizes Supreme Court ruling, and addresses legal issues.
