ATLANTA (AP) — Coca-Cola is suing a company that allows customers to use debit or credit cards to purchase items from vending machines over nearly $1 million in fees.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Coca-Cola recently filed a lawsuit in federal court in Atlanta. Coca-Cola Refreshments, the Atlanta-based company's bottling and fountain operations division, says USA Technologies Inc. of Malvern, Pa. continued collecting monthly fees on vending machines after the two firms parted ways two years ago (

USA Technologies was responsible for servicing the card devices and processing transactions. It's not clear how many machines it managed.

The lawsuit says that USA Technologies received 5 percent of vending machines' monthly proceeds and a percentage for processing transactions. The newspaper reports that the company did not return a request for comment.
