Consumer Group Praises Pepsi's Disclosure of Caffeine Content

WASHINGTON—Cans and bottles of Pepsi will now bear an important disclosure—the exact amount of caffeine in each serving. That information on soda containers will help pregnant women, parents, and others concerned about adverse effects of the mildly addictive stimulant drug, which is also found in coffee, tea, chocolate, and other products. Since 1997, the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has been calling on the Food and Drug Administration to require disclosure on food labels of caffeine content. The American Medical Association has done the same. Today CSPI applauded PepsiCo’s new practice and called on Coca-Cola and other marketers of caffeine-containing products to follow suit. .
