SSB Warning Labels

Health Warning Labels on Sugary Drinks

 

SB 347 (Monning) – Consumers have a right to know what they are drinking. When they are given the facts—at the point of purchase— they can make decisions that work best for them.

That’s why SB 347 would require all sugary drink bottles, cans, vending machines and fountains in the state of California to display a science-based warning.

Even if you think soda isn’t healthy, you might not know that juices and energy drinks contain enough sugar to seriously increase your risk of obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.

A warning label makes sure that everyone has access to the same critical health information when making choices for themselves and their families.

SB 347 is applicable to most beverages containing 75 calories or more per 12 oz. serving, including sodas, iced teas, energy drinks, sports drinks, and flavored waters.

SB 347 was introduced by Senator Bill Monning and is cosponsored by the following senators: Ben Allen, Bob Hertzberg, Holly Mitchell, Richard Pan, Nancy Skinner, Scott Wiener; and the following assemblymembers: Richard Bloom, Rob Bonta, David Chiu, Kevin McCarty, Jim Wood.
