Have You Been Drinking Flame Retardant?
“Brominated vegetable oil” is a synthetic chemical that has been used in Europe as a flame retardant.
The company says it has been exploring a way to remove the ingredient for more than a year, without affecting the flavor of their drinks.
More than 2,000 people signed a petition on change.org, asking Gatorade to remove the chemical.
A spokesman for the company says the new drinks will roll out in the next few months.
