Considering that the fruit juice content in the drink "SunShine" is less than five percent, I think it would definitely be deceptive to market it as a fruit juice. Sunshine drink can by no stretch of imagination be considered a fruit juice, so marketing it as one is both ethically and morally wrong because it misleads parents into believing that they are buying a healthy drink for their children. Added to this, fruit juices have fiber and fewer calories, which is something that the SunShine" drink misleads one to think holds true for it too, but does not deliver. These issues will definitely have an impact on SunShine drink marketing. According to State and Federal consumer protection laws, it is unlawful to indulge in deceptive marketing because it tends to mislead people into believing something about the product that is not true, irrespective of whether the marketing efforts actually end up fooling anyone or not (Berry, n.d.). The marketing campaign of SunShine drink does not have the technical truthfulness factor to back its claims, and even if it did, the company would still face legal problems because of the misleading impression created by the overall marketing campaign.
