PepsiCo will stop using Additive in Gatorade, due to many complaints. A petition was started to stop the use of additive. It had caused many side affects. The side affect includes neurological disorders and altered thyroid hormones.
The petition attracted over 200,000 signatures. Signatures was not the only option to get people’s attention. Sarah Kavanagh, who started this petition, traveled to New York city to tape a segment for the Dr. Oz show.
The petition has attracted many of people and a lot of traffic. Viewers have seen that social networks has played a big part in this change.
Molly Carter, who is a spokeswoman for Gatorade stated that,” the company had been testing alternatives to the chemical for roughly a year due to customer feedback.” She said Gatorade initially was not going to make an announcement, “since we don’t find a health and safety risk with B.V.O.”
Because of the petition, though, Ms. Carter said the company had changed its mind, and an unidentified executive there gave Beverage Digest, a trade publication, the news for its Jan. 25 issue.
