Popular drink POM being sued…

The Federal Trade Commission is going after the popular beverage POM for false and deceptive advertising.  The Agency says that the pomegranate juice claims that it can treat everything from heart disease to erectile dysfunction are bogus.  In the past, parent company POM Wonderful claimed to have spent $34 million in pomegranate research to back up its claims.  The company disagrees with the FTC findings and issued a statement claiming the FTC was “wasting taxpayer resources to prosecute pomegranates.”
