WASHINGTON — In response to a petition to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration led by the Center for Science in the Public Interest regarding caloric sweeteners in beverages, the American Beverage Association issued the following statement:
“Everyone has a role to play in reducing obesity levels – a fact completely ignored in this petition. This is why the beverage industry has worked to increase options and information for consumers,
We look forward to working with all interested parties in making further strides in bringing down obesity levels and helping consumers make informed decisions for themselves and their families.”
