Pepsi and Coca-Cola Cave, Agree to Remove BVO from Drinks
After a Mississippi teenager started a campaign on change.org to stop dangerous ingredients from being included in U.S. beverages, Coca-Cola and Pepsi have agreed to remove a controversial ingredient from all of their drinks. Brominated vegetable oil, which isn't approved in Japan and the European Union because it is a flame retardant, has been repetitively vouched for as meeting regulatory requirements by both companies. However, they have agreed to make the required changes, though a timeline has yet to be determined. Some of the products affected include Mountain Dew, Fanta, Powerade, Gatorade, and Amp energy drinks.
