Faygo founder’s relative says age behind firing

DETROIT — The grandson of a founder of an iconic Michigan soft drink firm says he was fired because of his age.

Hugh Rosenthal was marketing chief at Detroit-based Faygo when he lost his job at age 68 in 2012. He told the Detroit Free Press there was no legitimate business reason to let him go.

His lawsuit is in Flint federal court. The Free Press says Faygo vice president Al Chittaro declined to comment.

Faygo is a division of National Beverage Corp.
