The Center for Science in the Public Interest threatened to sue 7Up over advertising that shows the soft drink, which is sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup, being handled like fresh produce.

“Pretending that soda made with high fructose corn syrup is ‘all natural,’ is just plain old deception,” said CSPI executive director Michael F. Jacobson. “High fructose corn syrup isn’t something you could cook up from a bushel of corn in your kitchen, unless you happen to be equipped with centrifuges, hydroclones, ion-exchange columns, and buckets of enzymes.”
