Coke's tribulation in India
[New Delhi, August 8, 2003] Because of public outrage and fear over the use of pesticide ingredients in soft drinks —soft drink authorities in India have ordered two state labs to conduct research on both Pepsi and Coca Cola.
India’s Health Minister said that the lab results should be ready in the coming week. This tribulation became public after one environmental group (CSE) charged that both soft drink companies are selling their products with a harmful chemical element of cholorpyrifos, despite the denial by the two corporations.
Both Pepsi and Coca Cola are now banned in many places including the Indian Parliament.
