I couldn't make this up. (Yes, now I'm claiming credit for thread titles ripped, via Wikipedia, from real life!)
Legal types (I think
has one or two), is this fer real?
United States v. Forty Barrels and Twenty Kegs of Coca-Cola
, 241 U.S. 265 (1916), was a case under the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act. At issue was whether the Coca-Cola company had adulterated the product by adding artificial caffeine, and whether Coca-Cola was misbranded because both coca and cola, originally the two main "medicinal" ingredients, had been all but removed from the product at that time.
