Coconut Water Manufacturer Sued for False Label Claims

In a recently-filed lawsuit, Patrick J. Vital, a resident of the state of Florida, filed a class action complaint against One World Company, LLC (also known as One Natural Experience and doing business as One World Enterprises, LLC) for providing false information on the nutritional labels of their products, One Natural Experience Coconut Water (O.N.E.).
Coconut water has recently become popular, especially with athletes, due to it high potassium content, as well as other nutrients such as sodium, magnesium, phosphorus and vitamin C. According to the label on the packaging of O.N.E., this brand of coconut water is a "good source of electrolytes", which makes the drink appealing for rehydration after exercise.
