Thanks to a recent ruling by a federal court judge, health warnings are coming to soda ads in San Francisco whether the soda companies like it or not – and you can be pretty sure they don’t like it.
As you may recall, it’s been just over a year since San Francisco proposed legislation that would make it the first city in the country to require health warnings on public advertisements for sodas and sugary drinks. The city council approved the measure last June, with the new ordinance scheduled to go into effect this July 25. After that date, all public ads would need to include the language, “WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay. This is a message from the City and County of San Francisco.”
