A high court judge in Nigeria has ruled that some popular soft drinks sold under the Coca-Cola brand could be poisonous.
Bottles and cans of Fanta and Sprite in Nigeria may soon come with written health warnings after Justice Adedayo Oyebanji ordered the Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC) – the local manufacturer of the soft drinks – to place labels on the beverages to inform consumers against drinking them with vitamin C, according to a CNN report citing local sources.
Coca-Cola said the claims are inaccurate and unsupported by science.
“All our products are safe and strictly adhere to regulations in the countries where they are sold while complying with our company’s stringent global safety and quality standards,” a spokesperson for Coca-Cola told the Independent.
