Caltec Citrus Company
Caltec Citrus Company is a defunct business which in 1958 became involved in a legal battle with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The FDA carried out surveillance of the Caltec warehouse. At this time it discovered substances not usually found in 100% pure orange juice being carried in a rear door by Caltec employees. Among these materials were sugar and Vitamin C. The loss to consumers in watering down procedures has been estimated at $1 million in lost value.
