UAE bans Pepsi and Coke cans

DUBAI: The UAE announced yesterday that it has begun the process of removing cans of Coca-Cola and Pepsi from shops.

The 300ml cans are being pulled from shelves due to violation of consumer protection regulations.

The process will take around a month to complete, the consumer protection department of the Ministry of Economy said.

The cans are breaking regulations by being sold without putting the price or Arabic translation of the ingredients on the cans.

They are banned from all shops, restaurants and hotels.

Representatives from the Ministry said that strict penalties would be handed to anyone found still selling the cans.
