Pepsi innovation awaiting FDA approval.

You must be joking. The FDA is in the business of allowing poisonous artificial aweeteners and GMO seed pollution world wide. Surely you people at PepsiCo have long known that aspartame aka phenylaline is a carcinogenic poison which has claimed the lives of millions over the past few decades and contributed to the ill health of millions more.

Your company it appears did nothing to look for an alternative until now. That is if you just decided now. Attempting to appear to be a good guy in all of this innovation switch to more natural unharmful ingredients in Pepsi products. Attention, attention worldwide consumers: aspartame/phenylalene and other aritificial sweetener ingredients are fighting back legally and from advocates worldwide who are trying to have the lifted ban on aspartame reinstated forever so as not to continue to put human lives in harms way or jeopardy.

You must really think the people are too stupid to help themselves against these perceived grand standing tactics regarding the remarks about your new attempts to use natural sugars instead of aritificial ones. You should have never used it in the first place. You had to know that when the ban was lifted by Donald Rumsfeld during the first day of the Reagen Admin. that this was a bomb that would go off eventually and decimate many lives before changes can or if ever, will take place. It was banned in this country for a very good reason. But profits versus human rights/disability rights does not stand a chance against the greed need machine of the soft drink industry.

Boo on you.
