SANTA ANA, Calif. (Legal Newsline) – A California consumer alleges the maker of Amazon Energy drinks makes misleading claims about the beverages regarding characteristics they do not have.
Steve Altes, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on July 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Sambazon Inc. alleging breach of express and implied warranties and other counts.
The suit states the defendant manufactures and sells Amazon Energy drinks and the packaging states the drinks contain "clean caffeine" and are "antioxidant rich."
The plaintiff alleges that these claims are misleading. The suit states "there is no such thing as 'clean caffeine' and that the drinks fail to include a list of the nutrients with recognized antioxidant activity, making the antioxidant claim unauthorized."
The plaintiff is seeking restitution for money acquired due to unfair practices, interest, attorney's fees and costs and other relief deemed fit. The plaintiff is represented by Gregory S. Weston of The Weston Firm in San Diego.
