CPC Investigations Clears Fanta & Sprite, Calls for Review of Industry Standards

 

The four-week old controversy over the safety of Benzoic acid levels in Fanta and Sprite has taken a new twist, as the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) said it found samples of Seven Up (a product of Pepsico) and Lucozade (a product of Glaxo SmithKline) to contain Benzoic levels of up to 330.0mg/kg and 323.53mg/kg respectively – far higher than the Nigerian regulatory standard of 250mg/kg; while Fanta and Sprite, two brands that have been in the eye of the storm, were found to contain levels that were within the standard.

The CPC made this disclosure in a press release issued on Tuesday on the outcome of its investigation into possible safety issues in Fanta, Sprite and other select soft drinks, strongly canvassing for regulatory review and actions for safer soft drinks in Nigeria.

The Council’s investigation came on the heels of public outcry and consumers’ apprehension following the action at the Lagos State High Court in Suit between Fijabi Adebo Holdings Limited, Dr Emmanuel Fijabi Adebo and Nigerian Bottling Company Ltd, and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, which alleged that Fanta Orange and Sprite may have the potentials to be hazardous due to its incompatibility with the Benzoic Acid Standards in the United Kingdom.

Another Empire episode, another celebrity guest star in a major role. Nia Long made herEmpire debut as Las Vegas queenpin Giuliana in "Play On" and did not disappoint. With only four minutes of screen time, the actress still made more of an impact than anything that happened in the episode before she appeared. Of course, that means murders and schemes were afoot.

As is Andre Lyon’s way now, he and Shyne (Xzibit) meet Giuliana, her abusive husband Rafael (Al Vicente), and another violent criminal literally named Danger, in an abandoned and poorly lit warehouse. Rafael immediately proves to be too volatile of a man for anyone to work with when he starts dragging Giuliana around by the neck, pointing a gun at Andre (Trai Byers), and drinking out of When it seems like Rafael is definitely going to murder everyone amid a drunken paranoia spiral, Giuliana shoots her own husband. Shyne then shoots Danger to keep the aptly-named gangster from killing Giuliana. Not one to cry over a little spilt blood, Giuliana immediately offers to do business with the remaining men and shakes Andre’s hand in a way that suggests so much doom is ahead
