Are Evolution Fresh Drinks ‘Poison’?
Claim: Evolution Fresh brand cold-pressed juices and smoothies are ‘poison.’
Origin:In late February, an apparent hoax began circulating via Facebook claiming that Evolution Fresh brand cold-pressed juices and smoothies, commonly founds at Starbucks outlets, are “poison”:
We found no evidence that Evolution Fresh drinks are “poison,” nor that they are vended or produced “in Nigeria.” According to the brand’s official web site, most of the produce used in their manufacture is grown in California (and some of it in Arizona), and the product doesn’t appear to be sold beyond the borders of the United States. Evolution Fresh products doe not appear in the FDA’s database of food recalls.
