Coca-Cola Claims Their Secret Recipe Is Safe

The Coca-Cola Company is saying the famously secret recipe for their cola is safe despite the best efforts of the busybodies at NPR's This American Life.

The radio show ran a taste test of a recipe found in a 1979 newspaper article and determined that while the tastes were close, they were not in fact identical. The recipe is supposedly written on a piece of paper held in a bank vault and that "only a small handful" of people are familiar with it at any given time.
