Coke and Pepsi alter recipe to avoid cancer warning

Quote:
Coca-Cola and Pepsi are changing the recipes for their drinks to avoid being legally obliged to put a cancer warning label on the bottle.
The new recipe for caramel colouring in the drinks has less 4-methylimidazole (4-MEI) - a chemical which California has added to its list of carcinogens.
Oooh dear!

Ah further reading reveals..

Quote:
In a statement Coca-Cola added that the manufacturing process across Europe would not change.
It said that apart from California "not one single regulatory agency around the world considers the exposure of the public to 4-MEI as present in caramels as an issue".
Well that's OK then.

Re: Coke and Pepsi alter recipe to avoid cancer warning

Makes you wonder how many other apparently innocent ingredients contain traces of "safe" chemicals that are not needed to be declared on the labels.

What worries me is not so much the individual chemical but the fact that we are ingesting a whole cocktail of apparently safe or legally safe levels (not necessarilly the same) of chemicals.
