FDA sends warning letter to Coca-Cola for description labeling of Diet Coke Plus.
Wired PR News.com – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning to Coca-Cola in objection to the labeling of their Diet Coke Plus product, which is a soft drink marketed as one with vitamins and minerals. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), FDA regulators have identified the claims as inappropriate because the product does not meet the nutritional content guidelines for a “plus” labeling, which requires the product to have a 10 percent higher nutrient content amount than similar products.
According to the report, the FDA letter, which was posted online, requested the company make a revision to their labeling, and gave Coca-Cola 15 days to respond to the FDA with their intentions. If the company fails to adhere to the request, the FDA may have the option of taking Coca-Cola to court.
