Soda company recalls drinks sold at restaurants for chemicals, dye linked to cancer

Several popular products made by the same soda company have been recalled for failing to declare several chemicals and preservatives, including a coloring linked to cancer, according to an FDA enforcement notice.

The latest recall, listed as "voluntary" by the Food and Drug Administration, involves four Charles Boggini drinks, sold in restaurants across the United States.

The Company's Pink Lemonade, Cola Flavoring Base, Yellow Lemonade, and Yellow Lemonade

Pink Lemond was specifically recalled because it contained FD&C Red No. 40, a food, drug and cosmetic red pigment that has been linked to colorectal cancer. Yellow Lemonade and Yellow X Lemonade contain FD&C Yellow No. 5, which may cause allergic reactions in some.

 The cola flavor base has also been found to contain sulfites, which are common preservatives that can cause problems in large amounts, such as respiratory problems.

Soda recall issued by Charles Boggini Company was voluntary

Although the recall was listed as voluntary, Charles Bugini did not confirm the recall and did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, companies must disclose dyes, preservatives and other chemicals used in manufacturing. Failure to do so may result in a recall or fines.
