Pepsi, Coke contain pesticides: CSE

August 05, 2003 15:14 IST
Last Updated: August 05, 2003 17:02 IST


Close on the heels of a major health scare on finding pesticides in bottled drinking water, a non-government organisation on Tuesday claimed that the bottled soft drinks owned by two multi national companies -- PepsiCo and Coke -- also failed the same health standards testing positive for pesticides.
"12 major cold drink brands sold in Delhi and around contain a deadly cocktail of pesticide residues," Centre for Science and Environment said in New Delhi.
Officials of both PepsiCo and Coke declined to comment on the tests saying the two companies will be holding a joint press conference later.
According to the tests conducted by the Pollution Monitoring Laboratory of CSE, all samples contained residues of four extremely toxic pesticides and insecticides: lindane, DDT, malathion and chlorpyrifos.
The PML team involved in the tests was Dr H B Mathur, Dr Sapna Johnson and Avinash Kumar.
Three samples each of the 12 brands purchased from markets across the city, analysed in April-August and found to contain pesticides residues are Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Diet Pepsi, Mirinda orange, Mirinda Lemon, Blue Pepsi, 7-Up, Coca Cola, Fanta, Limca, Sprite and Thumbs Up.
Mathur said these pesticides included potent carcinogens which can cause cancers and reduce bone mineral density.
Johnson said the basic inference drawn from the tests is that groundwater used for making soft drinks is infested with pesticides. She said PML tested the cold drink samples for 16 organochlorine pesticides, 12 organophosphorous and four synthetic pyrethroids -- all of which are commonly used in India as insecticides.
CSE chief Sunita Narain said in all the samples, levels of pesticide residues far exceeded the maximum residue limit for pesticides in water used as "food", set down by the European Economic Commission.
Both Pepsi and Coca Cola had almost similar concentrations of pesticide residues.
In all PepsiCo brands, total pesticides on an average were 0.0180 mg/litre, 36 times higher than the EEC limit of total pesticides at 0.0005 mg/l.
In Coca Cola brands they averaged at 0.0150 mg/l, 30 times higher than the EEC limit.
Mirinda Lemon topped the chart among all the tested brand samples with a total pesticide concentration of 0.0352 mg/l.
Coca Cola and PepsiCo brands sold in the United States were also tested and found not to contain pesticides.
Narain, however, said in India, these companies cannot be taken to court since the norms that regulate manufacturing of cold drinks here are a "meaningless maze."

Coke and Pepsi told to spill secrets or face ban
From Ashling O'Connor in Bombay
INDIA’S highest court yesterday demanded that Coca-Cola should reveal its secret formula for the first time in 120 years.

The Supreme Court ordered the US soft drinks maker, along with its rival PepsiCo, to supply details of the chemical composition and ingredients of their products after a study released this week claimed that they contained unacceptable levels of insecticides.

Justice S. B. Sinha and Justice Dalveer Bhandari directed the companies to file their replies within four weeks, the Press Trust of India reported. “If they don’t comply, then the court has the authority to suspend sales,” Shreyas Patel, a lawyer at Fox Mandal Little, India’s oldest law firm, said. “But no one is going to give away a 120-year-old secret, especially in a country like India. Someone would go and make it themselves.”

Coca-Cola’s original recipe, according to company policy, is kept in a bank vault in Atlanta where only two executives — banned from travelling on the same aircraft — know it.

The court order followed the release of a report by the Centre for Science and Environment, a non-government body, which contended that 11 brands sold by the two soft drinks makers contained high levels of pesticide residues. The organisation said that samples from 12 states showed that Pepsi products contained 30 times more pesticides than in 2003, when a similar study was conducted. Coke samples had 25 times the amount of pesticides as three years ago.

The report, published on Wednesday, caused a row in India’s lower house, where MPs from across the political spectrum brandished its findings as reason enough to ban the sale of Coca-Cola and Pepsi. “These companies are playing with the lives of millions and we can’t ignore such warnings any more,” said Vijay Kumar Malhotra, from the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party, which staged a walkout over the issue .

It is not the first time Coca-Cola and Pepsi have found themselves mired in controversy in India. They are regular whipping boys for politicians who regard Western food products as a threat to Indian heritage, although sceptics suggest that their opposition has more to do with the companies’ virtual monopoly of the market than genuinely held feelings of cultural protectionism.

The US companies joined forces through the Indian Soft Drink Manufacturers’ Association to reject the findings of the study. “Consumer safety is paramount to us,” they said. “The soft drinks manufactured in India comply with stringent international norms and all applicable national regulations.”

The Bureau of Indian Standards, the highest government body to maintain product quality certification, has set a pesticide standard for bottled water but not for soft drinks.

In 2003, at the time of the last report, pesticide claims provoked a backlash. Schools banned colas, and fruit juice sales boomed as yoga gurus reminded people of the value of healthy drinking. Coca-Cola’s sales dropped by as much as 11 per cent in the subsequent financial quarter.

United colas of India - August 5th, 2006

Exactly as they did the last time round three years ago, the cola companies have refused to accept the findings of the Centre for Science and Environment’s (CSE’s) tests of 57 soft drink samples (of 11 soft drink brands), which show that they continue to have unacceptably high levels of pesticide residues, in some cases over 30 times the standards that the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) arrived at following the original cola controversy—standards that were never notified. While the stand taken by the cola companies is along expected lines, the real culprit in the story is not the companies (guilty enough though they may be), but a government that continues to play ducks and drakes with public health. After the first CSE report was discussed by a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC), it was found that there were no specific product safety standards for colas, so the BIS was asked to examine the issue and come up with such standards. It is not important to go into the stalling tactics that the CSE alleges took place to delay the setting of such standards, which necessitated a whole series to tests to see (for instance) if the pesticide residues came from the sugar used in the soft drinks—the tests showed sugar was not the culprit, according to the CSE. But what is important is that by March this year, the BIS finalised the standards. Yet, for whatever reason, the standards simply did not get notified—indeed, when the CSE alleges the pesticide levels are higher than the BIS standards, what it means is the finalised-but-not-notified BIS standards.

What is worse, and this applies not just to soft drinks but to all foodstuffs, is that Parliament has just passed the Food Safety and Standards Bill, which further dilutes any action that can possibly be contemplated against companies whose products violate health standards, as and when they are fixed. The food safety legislation does this through a curious overlapping of definitions of “residues”, “contaminants”, “extraneous matter”, and “sub-standard food”. So, if there is something in the food/drink that is potentially unsafe, like the pesticide residues that the CSE’s tests say were found in the cold drinks they tested, what will decide the action to be taken is whether the pesticide residue is a “contaminant”, whether it is “extraneous”, or “sub-standard”. If it is “extraneous”, the Section that describes “extraneous” says the food is not unsafe to consume; yet the definition of “unsafe” food describes this as food that contains “extraneous” matter!

The Bill is so full of such contradictions that it makes it near-impossible to ever take action against a company whose products are found to be unsafe/unhealthy. So, even if the BIS does notify the standards that the CSE alleges it has not done owing to political pressure, the food companies will always be able to argue their way around the problem by using the contradictory definitions in the food safety legislation. What is even more galling is that the same food companies immediately withdraw batches of water/drinks in other countries when the authorities there suspect a problem —in India, the presence of such reports doesn’t spur the industry to do anything except increase its spending on film stars who rubbish test reports.

Cola war in Junglistan - August 16th, 2006

The teashop at Junglistan's main junction was busy. They were all there. Tigers, elephants, porcupines, wolves, cows, buffalos, goats, monkeys, antelopes, alligators, crocodiles, cobras, vipers, pythons, sparrows, parrots, crows, mynas, parrots, kites, all of them. They had assembled there for their morning cup of tea and a piece of vada before they go to work. That's their daily routine, reading the Jungle Times over a cup of hot chai made by Ittooppu, the goat who owned the shop. His tea is famous, he brings it from the hills of Munnar.

Kesu, the monkey, was reading the newspaper aloud, for everybody's benefit. Or else there would be a fight for the only newspaper at the shop. The perils of literacy, one might say -- everyone in Junglistan could read and write.

"Junglistan Chief Minister Tortoise Kunhiraman has announced a ban on the sale and production of Choke and Pesti, citing reports of pesticide in the soft drinks. The ban will be implemented immediately, effective today. Shops selling existing stocks will be sealed and vendors will be made to drink the poisonous Choke and Pesti, in accordance with the law of the jungle."

As Kesu finished reading the news story, Thathamma, the parrot, flew in. She was late.

She was not in a hurry, she had nowhere to go. The Pesti plant, where she worked, had closed down.

"I don't know what to do? I didn't expect this from the Tortoise," she said, as she took her position on the perch by the fire. "Ittooppu, give me a strong tea. I will give you the money when I get a new job."

"Is the Tortoise going to ban everything that is bad for health. He should give us a list of what to eat and what not to eat. Think of it, I was drinking Choke all this while," Ganapati butted in. The elephant was very careful on matters of food. He wants the best of coconuts and palm leaves, and eats them all through the day. Add to that a little jaggery, and his day is made. But he couldn't believe Choke would deceive him. He was one of the biggest consumers of the soft drink, which actually turned out to be a hard drink.

"Consumer is King, those guys used to say. I even got the Consumer King Award once." Ganapati was disappointed with his multinational friends. "And you never told us about this," he said accusingly, turning to Thathamma.
"Psssssst," Nagraj burst out laughing. "If the Tortoise were to ban all unhealthy food, you would starve to death."

"Yes. Did you watch the debate on the television yesterday," asked the crow. He always wanted to be a journalist, but couldn't become one. Now he spends his time reading newspapers and watching TV, only news channels, mind you. Not for him the FTV and Saas-Bahu serials. "Milk has pesticides, so do palm leaves, and coconuts, and leaves, and grass, and fruits, and vegetables. What will you eat then, Ganapati?"

"That is bullshit," said Nandini, the cow. Her husband, who was sitting nearby, wasn't amused a single bit. "My milk is safe. Always. I never drank pesticide. Not even Choke or Pesti. You all know that. Ask Ittooppu, he makes tea with my milk. Don't you," Nandini turned to the goat for his approval. He nodded readily.

"But I always drank Pesti and ate grass from the riverside, where their factory is located. My body is full of pesticides now, enough to kill a lion. My doctor told me so," said Chameli, the Antelope. Her eyes were on the Tiger and the Lion. This should be enough to keep them off my back for some time, she thought.
Comrade Choodan, the cheetah, one of the last of his species, didn't like the conversation. He was a true Communist, like the Tortoise. "These multinational imperialists are ruining our jungle. They are stealing our water, adding sugar and selling their colas at such high prices. And you are falling for it. I would not allow it," he roared.

"Who are you to decide what we should drink? This is a democracy. And we can't stand this nonsense. Our children love Pesti. And tell me, will the CM ban cigarettes and alcohol too," shouted somebody from the back.

As they debated the vices of colas, a procession came their way. It was led by Kudiyan Paramu, the jungle's biggest drunkard. Paramu was a distant relative of Kesu. One could never see him on four legs. He was always on two legs. This time he was surprisingly walking as monkeys are supposed to.

"Tortoise murdabad," he said raising his fist. "Tortoise murdabad" his followers repeated. Among them was the jungle's leading bar owner Wine Babu.

They were going to the Tortoise's house. They wanted their CM to revoke the ban on colas. They wanted Choke back then and there. Because rum doesn't taste the same without Choke and Pesti.

Gaurav Mittal

u r right....... but what it also tells is that even tobacco and ciggy are injurious to health and the govt should treat them in the same manner. The govt. can easily come in lime light by canning soft drinks, but what about the other injurious products from which it earns?

Pepsi, Coke contains pesticides - August 18th, 2006

Kochi: Pepsi and Coke, in separate petitions before the Kerala High Court, on Friday challenged the ban imposed by the state government on aerated drinks.
Admitting the petitions, the court posted the matter for hearing on Monday.
The New Delhi-based Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), an independent agency, said that its test showed very high quantities of pesticides in samples of 12 brands of soft drinks.
Following the report, a number of states imposed limited restrictions on the sales of aerated drinks.
The Kerala cabinet on August 9 decided to ban the manufacture and sales of the soft drinks in the state. The decision came into effect the next day.
In their petitions, the cola giants have pointed out that their products were safe and no scientific studies had shown any harmful contents.
The petitions stated that their products were being sold in other parts of the country, apart from several other countries. They also claimed that the state government had no right to ban these products.
Both Pepsi and Coke have bottling plants in Palakkad district.

Filing the petitions is just another way of delaying the matter. Wat the govt needs is a hardcore action against them, so that they take care of the quality of the product.

Pepsi ready to steer clear of schools

PepsiCo will file a petition in the Kerala High Court on Friday challenging the Kerala government's August 11 order banning the sale of some of its products in the state.

"It is unfair to ban the sale of our products on the basis of findings of a non-governmental organisation. We are challenging the ban," PepsiCo Chairman Rajeev Bakshi, said.

He said Pepsi's products were "absolutely safe" and dubbed the findings of the Delhi-based Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), which had claimed presence of pesticide residues above permissible limits in Pepsi and Coca Cola soft drinks, as wrong.

Bakshi said he was prepared to subject his products to all sorts of tests to prove that they were absolutely safe.

With the standards for carbonated soft drinks yet to be developed, the company was prepared to subject itself to checks for residue levels in each of the input, which went into the soft drink, he said.

"We are open to work with the CSE or any other interested parties to establish stricter science based standards on the finished products of the soft drinks sector, which is not available in the world so far", he said.

Asked whether PepsiCo would challenge the findings of CSE in a court, he said "time is not appropriate for this now. Our first priority is consumer safety," he said.

PepsiCo had no objection for banning the sale of its soft drinks in primary schools.

"In fact, we do not encourage the sale of our products at primary schools. We do not even employ child artistes below 12 years for our advertisement campaign," he said.

Gaurav Mittal
