LaCroix Slammed With New Lawsuit

LaCroix is facing a new lawsuit that claims the president of its parent company, National Beverage Corporation, planned to falsely state in April that its sparkling water cans were free of the toxic chemical BPA.

The suit claims that Albert Dejewski, a former LaCroix executive, was wrongfully fired less than 24 hours after raising objections to the alleged BPA proposal in an email to National Beverage Corporation president Joseph Caporella.

Caporella allegedly responded to Dejewski's concerns with an emailed threat, then fired him over a phone call on April 11 that cited the BPA issue, according to the lawsuit, which was filed on Thursday in Passaic Superior Court in New Jersey.
