Coca Cola claims clean chit from MP government

MUMBAI: There's some good news for Coca Cola vis-?-vis the ongoing pesticide controversy.

A press release issued by the cola company claims that the Madhya Pradesh Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared all the soft drinks samples of Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Private Limited.

The FDA, says the release, collected the samples at random, all of which conformed to the requirements under the Prevention of Food Adulteration Act rules.


The release says that the FDA collected more than three dozen samples of brands like Coke, Fanta, Limca, Sprite, Thums Up and Kinley Soda from different parts of the state, for various tests. The public analysts at the State Food Laboratory, FDA, Bhopal, who conducted these tests, declared them to be in conformity with the PFA rules.

The beverage conglomerate also issued a statement saying that Madhya Pradesh has joined other states which had already confirmed the safety and quality of its products.

"Coca-Cola is committed to standards that are in the best interests of our customers in India. We will work closely with government in both, the development of appropriate standards as well as the national sampling and testing protocols, to ensure they are being followed," the statement says.
