SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Francisco is making a push to be the first city with warning labels on sugary drinks. Just like tobacco and alcohol, the warning would advise consumers against health risks. It would be required for drinks with high sugar content per 12oz.
According to Supervisors Scott Wiener, Malia Cohen and Eric Mar, this proposal will take a three-pronged approach to bring awareness to the danger of excess sugar consumption. This proposal is the result of the failed soda tax, and wouldn’t require voter approval.
