WASHINGTON — Coca-Cola said Friday it will lower levels of a chemical in caramel coloring to comply with a California law, but insisted the beverage’s recipe will not change and poses no health risks.
Pepsi is making similar changes in order to avoid having to label products with a cancer warning due to what California has ruled are high levels of 4-methylimidazole (4-MEI), shown to cause cancer in lab animals, consumer advocates said.
The changes do not amount to a change to Coke’s formula, spokesman Ben Sheidler told AFP.
“We are NOT changing our recipe; or our formula,” he said in an email.
