Coke, Pepsi make changes to avoid cancer warning

 Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. have decided to change the way they make the caramel coloring used in their sodas because of yet another California law that mandates drinks containing a certain level of carcinogens bear a cancer warning label.

Coca Cola and Pepsi say their drinks have always been safe and that their sodas will not taste any different.
A Food and Drug Administration spokesman noted that a consumer would have to drink more than 1,000 cans of soda a day to reach the doses administered that have shown links to cancer in rodents.
