<And shouldn't most cola drinks come with an SDS. Many are close if lower than pH 1.

A tidbit for you all to chew <heh> on. My dad was a truck driver, hauling hazardous commodities - gasoline and the like. He took a job with a beverage company which bottled many types, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. When he hauled fruit juice concentrate, which was like pH 0, he had to have the proper haz mat shipping manifest and SDS on the rig. But he did not have to placard the truck as to contents of the tank, as he would have if he were hauling gasoline.
It's always interesting to me who comes to the party when regulations are promulgated
Happy Mardi Gras, all!
