Coke, Pepsi make changes to avoid cancer warning

Coca-Cola Co and PepsiCo Inc are making changes to the production of an ingredient in their namesake colas to avoid the need to label the packages with a cancer warning.

The change will not be noticeable to consumers, according to statements from both companies.

Coke and Pepsi said on Friday that they had asked their suppliers of the caramel colouring in their colas to alter their manufacturing process to meet the requirements of a California ballot initiative aiming to limit people’s exposure to toxic chemicals.
