Has Your Budweiser Been Watered-Down?

Anheuser-Busch InBev has denied these accusations, but it seems as though ex-employees of the global drinks brand have other ideas. They have filed a suit a $5 million class-action lawsuit claiming that their drinks have been watered down.

Lawsuits were filed in a few states including California and Pennsylvania where (according to CBS News) Anheuser-Busch has a policy that requires the watering down of their product line including Michelob and Budweiser beers. If this is the case, it kind of renders the alcohol content reported on the label defunct.

Nina Giampaoli, one of the plaintiffs named in the lawsuits, said, “I think it’s wrong for huge corporations to lie to their loyal customers–I really feel cheated. No matter what the product is, people should be able to rely on the information companies put on their labels.”

These are pretty serious allegations and whether they’re tru or not, this has got to be hurting the brand. The old adage of “where there’s smoke there’s fire”  might be rumbling around in people’s minds wondering if the allegations are true or false. I suppose the next question is, if the allegations are true, how many more brands are carrying out the same practice?

I set up Hot Deals Monster because I was frustrated with the lack of deals specifically targeted to Men. I wasn't interested in cheap nappies or 10p off my next box of cornflakes. I wanted real, interesting deals that would genuinely help and save money for the male consumer.
