Seen it reported twice so far of a consumer group warning of caramel color.
Lots of vague stories going around, but I think it pertains to Caramel-III and Caramel-IV.

In order to consume a mass-equivalent dose of the coloring agent, an average-sized person would have to consume roughly 1000 12-oz. colas a day.

This is just another example of wacko groups using scare tactics on the public.

Whew, I'm safe... I never drink more than 800 or so 12 oz colas per day... :D

After clicking the link, it asks for an employee name and password. Do you work for Coca-Cola?
