The US Food and Drug Administration has ordered Dr Pepper Snapple Group to change the labels on its Canada Dry Sparkling Green Tea Ginger Ale after they were found to breach the law.

The food safety watchdog said that the drink broke regulations by making nutritional claims based on antioxidants in green tea, which is not a recognised nutrient. It is also against Food & Drug Administration (FDA) rules to make a nutritional claim on a carbonated soft drink, the agency added.

It ordered Dr Pepper Snapple to change its claim that the drink is "enhanced with 200mg of antioxidants from green tea and vitamin C" so that it complies with the rules.

The agency sent a warning letter to the company on 30 August and demanded a reply within 15 days of receipt.
