U of M Campus Goes Coke-less

By  | 

The University of Michigan has decided to stop selling Coca-Cola products on its three campuses, beginning in January.

The school's announcement comes six months after Coca-Cola said it was willing to examine its labor and business practices in India and Colombia to keep university contracts.

A Coca-Cola spokeswoman says a pending civil lawsuit has prevented an investigation. Michigan had set a December 31 deadline.

Coke's University of Michigan contracts are worth about $1.4 million.

The university and the company say they will continue to negotiate.
