  • After recent testing, it was found that Coke and Pepsi have removed 4-MI from products in California, but high levels of the substance were found in all Pepsi products tested from 10 other states
  • Pepsi stated they plan to remove the chemical for the rest of the US by February 2014 and are also planning to remove the chemical globally
