The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has agreed to drop its class action lawsuit against Cadbury-Schweppes, the makers of 7-Up soft drinks in exhange for their discontinuing their misleading labeling regarding high fructose corn syrup. 7-Up has agreed to change its label from "All Natural Ingredients" to "All Natural Flavors." The victory is not complete, however, given that flavors are ingredients, and such flavors are not all-natural. Proof of this is found in the absense of high-fructose corn syrup found in any natural plant matter. In addition, Cadbury-Schweppes has promised to remove "Natural" from Snapple labels as well.
