Food and beverage companies can be sued for false advertising if they put labels on products that would "mislead and trick consumers," the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

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.
