Pepsi Still Contains Chemical Linked To Cancer

By  

An environmental group said that the caramel coloring used in Pepsi still contains a worrisome level of a carcinogen, even after the drink maker said it would change its formula.

The group found via testing that while Coke products no longer test positive for the chemical, Pepsi products sold outside of California still do.

A Pepsi spokesperson tells The Salt that sodas sold throughout the U.S. should complete the transition to the new caramel coloring by February 2014. The company says efforts are also underway to switch the color formulation for sodas distributed globally.

“Pepsi’s delay is inexplicable,” Michael Green, executive director of the Center for Environmental Health, said. “We urge the company to take swift action.”

More than a year ago both Coke and Pepsi were supposed to make this change. Watch this video now where a doctor discusses this change and tells you 1 thing that you should start doing today:
