United States v. Forty Barrels and Twenty Kegs of Coca-Cola

United States v. Forty Barrels and Twenty Kegs of Coca-Cola, 241 U.S. 265 (1916), was a case under the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act. At issue was whether the Coca-Cola company had adulterated the product by adding artificial caffeine, and whether Coca-Cola was misbranded because both coca and cola, originally the two main "medicinal" ingredients, had been all but removed from the product at that time.
