Newsweek states that Class II is when the "use of, or exposure to, a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote."

Class III is given when "use of, or exposure to, a violative product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences."

The reason for the recall is because of undeclared things being in the sodas. The pink lemonade contained undeclared FD&C Red No.40, the cola contained undeclared sulfites, while both yellow lemonades contained undeclared FD&C Yellow No. 5.
