Nestle BOOST Kid Essentials

Despite a successful FTC lawsuit against Nestle for marketing its BOOST Kid Essentials drink as an immune system booster and illness preventer (which resulted in Nestle agreeing to stop making the health claims without FDA approval and/or competent and reliable scientific evidence), a U.S. District Court tossed out a class-action lawsuit against the company in August 2012.  The Court decided that the plaintiffs just criticized the strength of Nestle’s scientific support instead of coming up with actual proof that Nestle’s claims were false or misleading.  (Kurt Scheuerman, et al. v. Nestle Healthcare Nutrition, Inc., Case No. 10-cv-03684-FSH-PS)
