The lawsuit charges that the drink's claims are misleading because they give the impression that the antioxidants in the product come from fruits pictured on the label, while they're actually from added vitamin E.
The CSPI also argues that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration prohibits candies and soft drinks from being fortified with nutrients. The lawsuit was launched on behalf of a California man who bought the soft drink but said he didn't know the antioxidants didn't come from fruit juices, CBS/AP reported.
