 Coco-Cola Says Will Not Change Recipe

Dismissing rumors that it will be changing its 125-year old secret recipe, Coca-Cola has revealed that it will instead be changing how the soft drink is manufactured in California in order to avoid displaying the cancer warning label on its products.

The announcement was made after consumer watchdog Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) forced Californian authorities to list an additive used in the caramel coloring of cola as a carcinogen.

However CSPI's claims have been rejected by American Beverage Association which says that a person has to drink more than 2900 cans of Coca-Cola every day for 70 years in order to reach even the lowest dose of the compound, known as 4-MEI, to cause any serious health problems.

Coca-Cola added that the change in manufacturing process will be limited only to California with Coca-Cola Australia stating that a number of health agencies worldwide have deemed 4-MEI to be safe for consumption.

"All of our products are safe and comply with regulations in every country where we operate. Regulators throughout the world, including Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), have approved the use of the caramel found in our products", Coca-Cola Australia said.
