Coke Denies Report

NEW YORK -- The world's largest soft drink company, Coca-Cola Co., dismissed as speculation reports that the company plans to introduce purified bottled water in select North American markets next year.

"As far as we are concerned, the stories that appeared today are speculative," Scott Jacobson, a spokesman for Coca-Cola said, referring to a story in The Wall Street Journal.

Coke has long considered selling purified bottled water in North America.
