Lawsuit Proceeds Regarding Poland Spring Water Source Statements

April 1, 2019

A U.S. District judge declined to dismiss a lawsuit filed against Nestle Waters North America in which consumers claimed they overpaid for Poland Spring water because of the company's label that it is "100% Natural Spring Water," which they say is deceptive, according to Reuters.

A Nestlé Waters spokesperson responded: “Nothing in the Court’s recent decision undermines our confidence in our overall legal position. We will continue to defend our Poland Spring® Brand vigorously against this meritless lawsuit.

Poland Spring® Brand spring water is 100 percent natural spring water. In fact, an independent investigation conducted last year by the law firm DLA Piper confirmed that Poland Spring® Brand spring water sources meet all FDA regulations defining spring water. Consumers can be confident in the accuracy of the labels on every bottle of Poland Spring®, and that Poland Spring® Brand natural spring water is just what it says it is – 100 percent natural spring water.

The case is Patane v. Nestle Waters North America Inc, U.S. District Court, District of Connecticut, No. 17-01381.
