I have been watching this case,ever since coca cola made a "pomegranate and Blueberry" drink that had less than an eyedropper of actual pomegranate or blueberry juice,and the rest was apple and grape concentrate...
surprised at this outcome...pom shot itself in the foot,with it's outrageous claims,"live forever","cure cancer",,paraphrasing

There are a lot of other brands of juices doing this very same thing out there. They need to get tough with all of them. If you read the ingredients on a lot of these juice labels the majority is apple, pear or other juices with a lot of corn syrup and other junk in them and very little of the supposed good stuff. I also wonder how much GMO is in these ingredients as well.

Well, now, this is a shock. A nice one. A minor one. But it's something.

Finally can they add G.M.O's to the list if they are not labelled.

Perhaps, there is 'some' hope.
The Supreme Court _CAN_ do something right.
