Tropicana Products Inc. has sued the Coca-Cola Co. over labeling and advertising claims for its "premium choice" pasteurized Minute Maid orange juice. Tropicana contends that the description on the side panel of the Minute Maid container and ads depicting the juice as "100% pure Florida orange juice straight from the orange" are false and deceptive under an appellate ruling in a 6-year-old case.
