(NEWSER) – New testing may spell trouble for class action lawsuits over Budweiser alcohol content. At NPR's request, scientists in San Diego investigated whether Anheuser-Busch InBev's alcohol percentages matched labels—and found that they did. In tests of Budweiser, Bud Light Lime, and Michelob Ultra, "some of them were spot-on.
Others deviated, plus or minus, within a hundredth of a percentage," easily complying with federal laws, says a lab specialist. Still, the lead attorney for the plaintiffs in the case says internal company testing will reveal otherwise.
