Quigley challenges barnett to lie detector test and questions why he was asked
PepsiCo’s executive vice-president of consumer affairs and marketing, Gary Lass, announce골드 카지노d Monday that an investigation is underway into what he calls an aggressive push to boost sales.
Lass confirmed that PepsiCo has hired a lawyer and is reviewing documents from the case “to determine if we can identify other violations of state or federal law.” He said the investigation will include reviewing records from the Consumer Protection Division, the FTC and the Justice Department.

The attorney general’s office is seeking a court order compelling PepsiCo to turn over any documents, letters, memos, letters of support or statements from anyone who made “false or misleading statements or omissions” in order to “cover up” wrongdoing.

Pepsi Co did not immediately respond to an email seeking an additional comment. A PepsiCo spokesman said a legal settlement did not result from the investigation but, rather, is the result of negotiations between the company and the Consumer Protection Division and the Federal Trade Commission.
“Any attempt to impede or prevent our company’s customers from getting access to our products is not permissible, and we intend to defend vigorously against these efforts,” the spokesman said.
Under a 2009 agreement with the state of New York, customers of the beverage giant must submit to a state police investigation of any violations of consumer protection laws. While PepsiCo had no plans to enter into a class-action settlement with the state of New York, a spokesman said it was “extremely disappointed” by the investigation of the company.
