Pepsi Pulls 12-Packs, 2-Liters From Shelves In Pa. Over ‘Soda Tax’

Recommended Posts

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Pepsi is pulling 2-liters and 12-packs of its products from Philadelphia grocery store shelves over the city’s new tax on sweetened drinks.

The company says in a statement it wants to offer products and package sizes that working families can better afford.

The 1.5-cent-per-ouce tax on sweetened and diet beverages is imposed at the distributor level. If fully passed onto the consumer, it amounts to $1.44 on a six-pack of 16-ounce bottles.

The company’s decision affects sodas like Pepsi and Mountain Dew, and other sweetened drinks like Gatorade and Lipton Iced Tea drinks.
