Red Bull Sued over Energy Claims
Because they charge more money than coffee. No, it makes no sense.
Red Bull, the popular energy drink whose slogan is "gives you wings," provides no more energy than a cup of coffee or a caffeine pill, according to a lawsuit made public on Wednesday.
The lawsuit claims that Red Bull uses deceptive marketing to charge a premium for a product whose claims are largely unfounded.
"Defendants are able to charge and get a substantial premium for their products over readily available and much lower priced sources of caffeine that provide the same or substantially similar results," the lawsuit said.
