As the coronavirus takes its toll on the US economy and beyond, it may also impact production of a beloved beverage: Diet Coke.

In its annual report published on Monday, Coca-Cola cited “delays in the production and export” of ingredients sourced in China including zero-calorie sweeteners used in several of its diet products, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

The article goes on to state the following:

“As a result of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, beginning in January 2020, our suppliers in China have experienced some delays in the production and export of these ingredients,” the report reads. “We have initiated contingency supply plans and do not foresee a short-term impact due to these delays. However, we may see tighter supplies of some of these ingredients in the longer term should production or export operations in China deteriorate.”
