The FDA's Mad about Coke Plus!
The soda, Coke Plus, is sold as a good source of vitamins and minerals. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is not impressed. "The FDA does not consider it appropriate to fortify snack foods such as carbonated beverages," the agency said in a letter to Coca-Cola on Tuesday. But Coke doesn’t think they’ve done anything wrong—what a shocker—claiming this does not involve any health or safety issues. Regardless, they have 15 days to outline a corrective course of action; via Reuters.
Listen, adding vitamins to soda is like putting a pig in a dress, its a still sugar-laden junk food, i.e. a pig. So bad, that the some experts wanted to slap a Surgeon General’s warning on it. Yes, for real.
