Gatorade Removes Flame Retardant Ingredient After 15-Year-Old's Petition

Filed under: FoodHealth

Okay, so if you're somewhat confused, we understand. We're just learning this too.

Gatorade apparently has an ingredient, brominated vegetable oil (BVO), that can be used as a flame retardant!

When in Gatorade, BVO actually keeps certain flavors mixed in, or else the flavoring ingredient would float to the surface of the drink.

Sarah Kavanaugh, 15, realized people probably shouldn't be drinking BVO, so she started a petition on Change.org.

And PepsiCo, owner of Gatorade, listened! They're replacing the ingredient! That was easy!

Subway could take a page out of Pepsi's book! LOLz!

It's so amazing that they reacted so quickly to the online petition. They just saved themselves a lot of consumer grief.

Way to go, Sarah!
