    Jefferies' Thilo Wrede warns investors not to get too excited about a potential Pepsi (PEP +0.7%) for Mondelez (MDLZ +1.1%) deal, despite pressure from Nelson Peltz. Although such a move might look accretive, appearances can be deceiving, and Wrede doesn't think such the proposal is consistent with either firm's plans.

    Nelson Peltz says Pepsi (PEP +1%) should buy Mondelez (MDLZ +3.8%) for $35 a share and tells Andrew Ross Sorkin that the problem at PEP isn't management, it's "structure."

    A timeframe that Nelson Peltz has given to PepsiCo (PEP) to consider the activist shareholder's suggestions has reportedly ended. Proposals include acquiring Mondelez (MDLZ), strategic options for PepsiCo's North American drinks business and more cost-cutting. Some believe that if the company hasn't adequately address Peltz's concerns, he could go public. A CNBC interview this afternoon could prove interesting.

    SodaStream (SODA) has very quietly been trying to sell itself over the last three months, reports the New York Post. According to sources, PepsiCo (PEP) only had interest in part of SodaStream's business and did not make a formal offer - while Coca-Cola passed completely.

    PepsiCo (PEP +0.9%) says it plans to remove 4-MEI from products across the world while still maintaining the chemical additive is safe. A report issued last week from the Center for Environmental Health called out that the company had only changed its formulas for drinks in California to comply with local regulations.

    PepsiCo (PEP) hasn't transitioned itself away from using a dangerous chemical as fast as the Center for Environmental Health thinks it should have, but it might be on more solid ground than some critics indicate. The FDA concluded a consumer would have to drink 1,000 cans of soda a day to reach the level of doses of 4-methylimidazole administered to laboratory rats that showed a link to cancer.

    PepsiCo (PEP) is the focus of a report from The Center of Environmental Health in which it's alleged the beverage maker is still using a chemical linked to cancer in rodents. Over a year ago, both PepsiCo and Coca-Cola pledged to stop using 4-methylimidazole as part of its caramel coloring, but testing by the watchdog group showed the presence of the chemical in Pepsi products sold outside of California.

    Coca-Cola (KO +1.3%) launches stevia-sweetened products in Argentina to mark the first time the company will use the sweetener additive. The beverage firm, in tandem with PureCircle, is seeking intellectual property protection on the extract. What to watch: PepsiCo (PEP +0.6%) isn't nearly as high on the health benefits of stevia and may watch idly as Coca-Cola explores a larger roll-out if sales in Argentina are strong. (patent filing)

    New federal rules will limit the amount of fat, salt, and sugar in school lunches. Vending machines will be limited to 200 calories per item and 12-ounce drinks cannot exceed 60 calories which will cut out many products from soda companies (KO, PEP, DPS).

    Consumer Staples watch: Major U.S. food companies (GIS, K, CPB, POST, CAG) have been swept up in a rush by investors to dividend-paying consumer staples (XLP) but the tide could be turning with Treasury yields higher and earnings reports from the group looking uninspiring. Rahul Sharma notes the higher exposure to emerging markets of companies like Coca-Cola (KO), Philip Morris (PM), and PepsiCo (PEP) looks appealing with Western shoppers increasingly focused on pricing and volume gains hard to come by.
