Sales of “GT’S Kombucha” and “Synergy” Drinks

Green & Noblin, P.C. served notice of a violation of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (also known as Proposition 65) on Millennium Products, Inc., the manufacturer of the drinks “GT’s Kombucha” and “Synergy,” as well as two retail chains where they were sold: Whole Foods and Walgreens. The notice alleges that the label on the drinks stated they might contain “a trace amount of alcohol (less than 0.5%)” while, in fact, the drinks contain significantly more, as much as 4% alcohol. An independent laboratory tested samples of the drinks purchased at a Walgreens store to confirm that the level of alcohol significantly exceeded the amount stated on the labels. Under Proposition 65, any company knowingly selling a product containing more than 0.5% alcohol must provide a clear warning to that effect on the product’s label.
