Some retailers in the St. Louis area are being asked to pull a variety of Coca-Cola products off the shelves because of a "slight off taste."

According to KSDK.com:

“Kevin Morris, from Coca-Cola, said the taste is due to minerals in the water and there [are] no health concerns. Coca-Cola is not asking customers to return the product.

Morris said they are taking the products off the shelves because "Coca-Cola has a commitment to the highest quality standards."

While the company says customers don't need to return the drinks, a rep for Schnucks grocery stores says anyone who has cans or bottles of the withdrawn sodas (see full list below) can exchange or return them for a full refund.
