Coca-Cola Says All Products Sold to Consumers in China Are Safe

Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Coca-Cola Co., the world’s largest soft-drink maker, said that all of its products sold in China are safe, after local media reported some imported items failed to meet Chinese quality standards.

Some products, including fruit and vegetable juice concentrates that Coca-Cola imported into China late last year, were destroyed due to chemical contents or returned, the Chinese-language Economic Daily reported on its website today, citing the nation’s quality regulator.

The items were imported as research samples and have no impact on Coca-Cola products sold to local consumers, Sharolyn Choy, a Singapore-based company spokeswoman, said in an e-mailed response to Bloomberg News.

Juice concentrates were “incorrectly tagged” and two cases of Sokenbicha, a Japanese blended tea brand owned by Coca-Cola, were returned due to lack of necessary documents for customs clearance, Choy said.
