Kraft Foods - False Advertising and Aspartame Poisoning
Crystal Light "Natural" Lemonade - Complaint
SOUTH BEND, INDIANA -- My fiance and I try to eat and drink as natural as possible. His mother gave us a container of Crystal Light Natural Lemonade packets. I saw the word "natural" in larger print and didn't think to look on the back for any serious additives. One packet makes 1 quart of lemonade. We had been drinking this lemonade for a total of about three weeks, during this time frame my fiance started feeling muscle pains in his back, abdominal and groin. We didn't think much of this until the pain started increasing as well as unusual fatigue and headache. This past Saturday, my fiance and soon to be father of my child was rushed to the hospital by an ambulance. That morning he woke up with severe lower back pain and nausea. He then suffered a seizure and that is when I called 911. After suffering intense pain, a CAT scan revealed that he had passed two kidney stones to his bladder. My fiance has never had a seizure or kidney problems prior to consuming aspartame in this product.
I would like some sort of compensation for false advertisement, and the grief and stress this has caused my family and unborn child. If I don't at least receive an apology, I will be sure to inform my whole community of the dangers lurking in Kraft Foods products.
