No ka ʻike hou aku i kāhea: Gary Ruskin (415) 944-7350

Pono ʻo US e ʻike hoʻopiʻi ʻia nā Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) i kēia lā no ka hoʻokō ʻole o CDC i ke Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) a hāʻawi i nā palapala i ka pane ʻana i nā noi ʻeono e pili ana i ka launa pū ʻana me The Coca-Cola Company.

ʻO nā noi a nā lehulehu ka ʻāpana o kahi hoʻokolokolo. Ke hana nei ʻo USRTK i ka mana o Coca-Cola ma ka CDC a me ka hopena o ka ʻoihana i nā kulekele lehulehu. Hōʻike nā hōʻike olakino lehulehu e pili ana ka ʻai ʻana o nā soma sugary i ka maʻi pīpī momona, a he kuleana paha kēia ʻumi tausani mau make i kēlā me kēia makahiki. Eia nō naʻe, hōʻike ʻia nā hōʻike i kēia lā e hōʻike nei i nā limahana CDC hāʻawi i ke alakaʻi politika iā Coca-Cola, ʻae ʻo Coca-Cola i hāliu i ka CDC, a ʻae ʻia nā hāʻawi mai Coca-Cola ma o ka CDC Foundation, nāna i hōʻike i kēlā mau hāʻawi i kēlā me kēia manawa i ka makahiki aku nei.

"Ke hoʻopiʻi nei mākou i ka CDC e wehe i ka nui a me ke ʻano o ka pilina o ka CDC me Coca-Cola," i ʻōlelo ʻia ʻo Gary Ruskin, ka luna alakaʻi o US Right to Know, kahi hui a me kahi hui kiaʻi olakino lehulehu. "E like me ka hewa o ke kōkua ʻana o ka CDC i nā ʻoihana paka, hewa pū kekahi no ka kōkua ʻana o CDC i nā ʻoihana obesogenike e like me Coca-Cola."

Mai ka 2016, ua faila ʻo USRTK i nā noi 19 FOIA me ka CDC. Me nā palapala i loaʻa iā mākou ma o FOIA mai CDC a me nā kumuwaiwai ʻē aʻe, ua kōkua mākou e hōʻike i ka pilina o ka hui CDC o Brenda Fitzgerald me Coca-Cola a me VP a me ka luna ʻepekema ʻepekema a me ke olakino Rhona Applebaum i ka New York Times a ʻO ke kuʻina.

Ua hōʻike pū mākou ʻo Barbara Bowman, ka luna o CDC's Division no ka maʻi puʻuwai a me ka pale ʻana i ka maʻi ahulau, ua ʻōlelo aʻo aku i ka pelekikena hope hope nui ʻo Coca-Cola pehea e hōʻoki ai i ka World Health Organization mai ka haki ʻana i ka kō kō.  Ua haʻalele ʻo Bowman i ka CDC ʻelua mau lā ma hope o ka hōʻike ʻia ʻana o kāna ʻōlelo aʻo i ka luna mua o Coca-Cola.

Ua kōkua pū mākou e wehe i ka hopohopo o nā limahana CDC i kā CDC "ke hoʻonohonoho ʻia nei ka mikiona e nā ʻaoʻao i waho a me nā hoihoi kolohe"A kā lākou kāhea ʻana iā"hoʻomaʻemaʻe i kēia hale. "

Loaʻa nā ʻike hou aʻe i kā mākou noiʻi ʻana i ka mana o Coca-Cola ma ka CDC ma: usrtk.org/our-investigations/#coca-cola.

Ma Kēkēmapa 15, 2017, ua faila ʻo USRTK ʻeono mau noi a FOIA me ka CDC e pili ana i kona pili iā Coca-Cola. Ua ʻae ka CDC i ka loaʻa ʻana o kēia mau noi a FOIA ʻehā mau lā ma hope, akā ʻaʻole i hāʻawi ʻia i kahi pane ʻē aʻe. Ua ʻōlelo ʻia ma ke kānāwai FOIA koi ʻia nā keʻena pekelala e pane i loko o 20 mau lā ʻoihana.

E like me ka Hōkeo transparency Coca-Cola, Hāʻawi ʻo Coca-Cola i $ 1.1 miliona i ka CDC Foundation ma 2010-12. Akā ʻaʻole ʻo Coca-Cola i hōʻike i nā manawaleʻa i ka CDC Foundation ma hope o 2012. Hōʻike ka CDC Foundation i kēlā mau hāʻawi, akā ʻaʻole ka nui, i nā makahiki 2017, 2016, a 2015 - ʻaʻohe o lākou e hōʻike ʻia e Coca-Cola.

Aia nā CDC a me Coca-Cola ma Atlanta.

Ua kahili ʻia ʻo CDC i loko o ʻelua mau mea hoʻomāinoino i hala iho nei. Ma Ianuali 31, ua haʻalele ka Luna CDC ʻo Brenda Fitzgerald i kāna kūlana, ma hope o a ʻAtikala Politico ke hāpai nei i nā nīnau e pili ana i kāna hoʻopukapuka i ka paka a me nā ʻoihana ʻē aʻe. Ma Kēkēmapa 15, ka Ua hōʻike ʻia ʻo Washington Post ua pāpā ʻo CDC i ka papa inoa o nā huaʻōlelo ʻehiku a i ʻole nā ​​huaʻōlelo - e like me ka "hōʻike hōʻike" a me ka "ʻepekema" - mai nā palapala budget.

Ua waiho ʻia ka hoʻopiʻi ʻo USRTK FOIA i ka ʻAha Hoʻokolokolo ʻAmelika no ka Apana o Columbia. Loaʻa ka hoʻopiʻi USRTK ma: https://usrtk.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/USRTK-v-HHS-complaint.pdf. ʻO US ka inoa o ka hihia no US v e ʻike v. Keʻena ʻOihana Ola a me nā lawelawe kaiāulu. Ua pani ʻia ʻo USRTK ma kēia mea e ke keʻena loio o Mark S. Zaid.

ʻO nā ʻike hou aku e pili ana i ka hoʻopiʻi ʻana o USRTK no ka transparency ma: usrtk.org/our-litigation.

ʻO US Right to Know kahi mea kūʻai aku kōkua ʻole a me ka ʻoihana olakino lehulehu e noiʻi ana i nā pilikia e pili ana i ka ʻōnaehana meaʻai ʻoihana, a me nā hana a ka ʻoihana meaʻai i ka kulekele lehulehu. No ka ʻike hou aku, e ʻike usrtk.org.
