BELLEVILLE — Ocean Spray Cranberries' cranberry juice contains sugar and preservatives despite a label advertising otherwise, a St. Clair County woman claims in a class action lawsuit. 

Danielle Schwartz filed the complaint on July 17 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Ocean Spray Cranberries Inc., alleging that the juice manufacturer violated the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.

According to the complaint, the cranberry juice Schwartz purchases from her local Dollar General contains juice concentrates and ascorbic acid, despite a label by the company advertising no sugar added and no preservatives. 

Schwartz requests a jury trial and compensatory damages. She is represented by David C. Nelson of Nelson & Nelson Attorneys at Law in Belleville.
