Martha Rosenberg, BMJ, February 28, 2018
US Right to Know, a campaign group for transparency in the food industry, has sued the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) over its failure to release correspondence between agency officials and current and former employees of Coca-Cola requested under freedom of information rules.
Within days of filing the suit on 21 February the group said that it had received a small batch of new documents from the CDC. Asked whether the quick response was an attempt to stop the lawsuit, Gary Ruskin, co-director of US Right to Know, said “possibly,” but the group still sought the additional emails specified in the suit “to uncover the extent and nature of the CDC’s relationship with Coca-Cola.”
