Fear of Carbendazim in Coca-Cola’s Orange Juice Spreads Online

The hottest post on popular Chinese microblogging service Sina Weibo right now…

From Sina Weibo:

@美食上海站: “Attention, everyone don’t drink Minute Maid’s Pulpy Orange Juice”. Coca-Cola has admitted that its orange juice contains agricultural fungicide carbendazim, which is prohibited in the United States, though the concentrations do not exceed limits. However, experts say carbendazim can cause brain damage and liver tumors. Orange juice sold in Hong Kong is also included, and Hong Kong’s Food and Environmental Hygiene Department is currently investigating. Experts indicate that carbendazim is like other agricultural chemicals and have the most effect on the brain, and can cause partial paralysis. For everyone’s health, forward this to your loved ones!
