• The Associated Press reports that a class action suit filed in federal court in Connecticut accuses Nestle Waters North America is deceiving consumers with its claim that its Poland Spring Water brand is “100 percent natural spring water.” The suit claims that the company “is bottling common groundwater that doesn’t meet the federal definition of spring water.”

The story notes that Nestle Waters says that its water “meets all relevant federal and state regulations for spring water,” and that the company “settled a 2003 Connecticut lawsuit claiming Poland Spring’s water was not sourced deep in the Maine woods.”
