Coca-Cola is once more in hot water with authorities in India, with it, alongside rival PepsiCo, being accused of producing drinks with toxins way in excess of the levels permitted in the developed world. Both companies have vigorously denied the allegations. A report by India's Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) claims that samples of Pepsi drinks it tested contained 36 times the level of pesticide residues, including lindane, DDT, malathion and chlorpyrifos, permitted under European Union regulations. Coca-Cola's had 30 times the level.
