Lucozade to stop lying to customers

This petition had 176 supporters

At least three petitions have sprung up about the recipe change, and I think we all know the objections to it by now. My own objection is slightly different.

Despite changing the recipe, Lucozade have not changed the packaging of their product in any way, and are still marketing it as "original", which it is clearly not. The lack of warning has caused people to buy it mistakenly, causing severe problems for diabetics and those with aspartame allergies, and leading customers to waste their money on the substandard new product. This violates Trading Standards and shows a remarkable lack of respect for the consumer. On a purely personal level, it also makes me wonder if they know how bad the new product is and are intentionally trying to trick the consumer; surely if they had confidence in it to be as good as they insist, they would use the new recipe as a marketing point, not hide it?

I'd also appreciate it if anyone could leave information in the comments about whether and how it would be possible to bring about a lawsuit on these grounds.
