Lawsuit Dismissed Against Poland Springs
A lawsuit against Poland Springs as been dismissed.
According to pressherald.com the lawsuit accused the company of providing water from wells, not springs. The company argued the matter was already settled in 2003 in Illinois and a federal court can't pre-empt a state court.
The company said plaintiffs should take the matter up with the FDA instead of going to court. Poland Spring says its product meets the FDA’s definition that allows a bottling company to call its product spring water. The Maine Drinking Water Program implements the FDA rules governing spring water.
