If you like Diet Coke you may want to take advantage of any sales now; soda giant Coca-Cola says that the Coronavirus could cause shortages of the drink.
Some of Diet Coke’s ingredients are exported from China, the exact location where the virus has killed over 2,000 people. As market restrictions on production and exports are tightened to prevent virus outbreaks, Coke says it may be short on ingredients like Splenda, the stuff that sweetens Diet Coke.
“The company’s deepest sympathies go out to those who have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak,” Coca-Cola announced in a press statement. “The company is carefully following all government guidelines and taking precautionary steps to do what it can to prevent the further spread of the virus.”
