Coke cans toxic caramel coloring but Pepsi still packs 8 times the ‘safe’ amount

“Coke products no longer contain 4-methylimidazole (4-MEI), whereas Pepsi has only changed the products it sells in California. Research showed that 10 out of 10 Pepsi products purchased outside of California during the month of June 2013 still contain 4-MEI at levels ‘four to eight times higher than the safety thresholds set by California.’  Pepsi assured NPR reporter Allison Aubrey that there is nothing dangerous about their products. ‘The FDA and other regulatory agencies around the world, including the European Food Safety Authority and Health Canada, consider our caramel coloring safe for use in foods and beverages,’ a spokesperson insisted.”
