The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sent a letter to Coca-Cola, telling them to stop claiming Diet Coke Plus has nutritional supplements. The FDA wants the beverage company to revise the drink's labelling within 15 days.
The FDA is not happy with Coca-Cola. It recently send the company a stern letter about Diet Coke Plus, a drink Coca-Cola supposedly infuses with "vitamins and minerals." But the FDA didn't see any evidence of those claims.
The FDA objects to how Coca-Cola labels Diet Coke Plus, writing, "The label of your product does not state the identity of a reference food and the percentage (or fraction) of the amount of the nutrient in the reference food by which the nutrient in the labeled food differs, as is required for relative claims such as 'plus'."
The company was ordered to "take prompt action to correct the violations." The FDA gave Coca-Cola 15 days to revise the label on future Diet Coke Plus products, although it is uncertain when Coca-Cola received the letter.
Scott Williamson, a Coca-Cola North America spokesman, told CNNMoney the company takes the FDA's concerns seriously, while noting that the warning doesn't involve any health or safety issues.
