BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Ginger ale doesn’t contain ginger: Lawsuit

Ginger ale doesn’t contain ginger: Lawsuit

Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, preservatives and natural flavors that don’t include fresh ginger are the ingredients at the heart of a lawsuit filed against Canada Dry this month.

A Bolivar, New York, woman filed the lawsuit in federal court in Buffalo, New York, claiming the Plano, Texas-based company’s ginger ale doesn't contain ginger as advertised, USA Today reported Monday.

Julie Fletcher is accusing Canada Dry and its parent company, Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc., of misleading customers. ”In truth, DPSG’s soft drink is not made from real ginger,” reads the lawsuit, accessed by USA Today. The drink does however contain a “minuscule amount of a ginger flavor extract,” the suit states.

The lawsuit is the latest among several brought against Canada Dry, the newspaper reported, adding that at least one has been dismissed.
