Coke, Pepsi change their practices in response to California law on caramel coloring

The AP reports that “Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. are changing the way they make the caramel coloring used in their sodas as a result of a California law that mandates drinks containing a certain level of carcinogens come with a cancer warning label.”

The AP mentions that “the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer advocacy group, in February filed a petition with the Food and Drug Administration to ban the use of ammonia-sulfite caramel coloring.”

The San Francisco Chronicle also covers this story in its “Hot Topics” blog.
