PepsiCo Announces Recall of ‘Zero Sugar’ Schweppes Ginger Ale Due to Mislabeling

PepsiCo has initiated a recall of 233 cases of its ‘zero sugar’ Schweppes Ginger Ale, following the discovery of high sugar levels that contradict its labeling, as reported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The recall, announced by the FDA earlier this month, targets 7.5-fluid-ounce cans distributed across Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The decision came after an internal audit by PepsiCo revealed that the beverages, marketed as sugar-free, contained the same amount of sugar as regular sodas, ranging from 20 to 33 grams per can.

Further details about the recall, including whether the affected products have been removed from retail locations, remain unclear. However, as of the latest update, no adverse health effects or injuries have been reported in connection with this incident. PepsiCo continues to work closely with regulatory authorities to ensure the recall is conducted efficiently and safely.

This incident underscores the importance of accurate product labeling and adherence to health standards to maintain consumer trust and compliance with dietary guidelines. PepsiCo has not yet commented on the measures being taken to prevent future discrepancies.
