Legal Battles Brew for Logan Paul’s Prime Drink: $10 Million Lawsuits Over Hidden Ingredients

In the busy world of energy drinks, there’s a lot of talk about Logan Paul and his Prime Hydration brand. But now, some legal troubles are causing a stir.

Two lawsuits are going after Paul’s energy drink company. They say Prime Hydration is being dishonest about how much caffeine is in their drinks and that there are potentially harmful chemicals in them.

The first lawsuit, filed in New York, focuses on the caffeine levels in Prime Hydration’s 12-ounce energy drinks. The plaintiffs say lab tests done by their legal team found that the drinks had between 215 and 225 milligrams of caffeine per can, which is more than the 200 milligrams listed on the label.

Lawsuits challenge industry norms, spotlight labeling accuracy, and chemical safety in the energy drink market.

Because of this, the person who bought the blue raspberry flavor in August 2022 is asking for $5 million in damages. They say they wouldn’t have bought the drink if they knew how much caffeine was really in it.

The Claims of ‘Forever Chemicals’

The story doesn’t stop with caffeine. Another lawsuit filed in California is raising concerns about something called PFAS, also known as ‘forever chemicals.’

These are synthetic compounds found in various products like stain-resistant sprays and toiletries.

Logan Paul’s TikTok rebuttal gains 15.3M views and denies non-FDA substances in beverages.

They’re not supposed to be in drinks, according to the FDA. The lawsuit says tests found PFAS in the grape-flavored Prime drink, leading to a claim for $5 million.

Logan Paul’s Strong Response

In response to these accusations, Logan Paul went on TikTok, where his video got over 15.3 million views. In it, Paul strongly denied that his drinks have any substances not approved by the FDA.

He explained that the PFAS concerns were about the bottles, not the drink itself, saying, “We use the best bottle manufacturers in the U.S.”

Paul defends Prime’s standards, disputes testing accuracy, and awaits legal resolution on alleged violations.

Paul also questioned the accuracy of the tests used in the lawsuits, saying they didn’t follow EPA standards. According to him, the PFAS levels found were very low and below what the EPA considers a problem.

Industry Standards and Keeping Consumers Safe

These lawsuits aren’t just about Prime Hydration; they also raise questions about how products are labeled and what’s safe for consumers. The energy drink market has faced criticism before, and as brands like Prime deal with these legal and public relations challenges, it could affect how drinks are made and labeled in the future.

While Logan Paul is confident about his company’s standards and calls the claims “absolute bull,” the courts will decide if they’re true. This could change how energy drinks are made and labeled going forward.
