One should of course be very careful handling acids, but toxic it is not.

Very dilute phosphoric acid is used in cheap lemonade - and for all I know Cola as well.

Thank you for this information, I shall pass it on to Sea Shepherd at Brest. It's still a concern that such chemicals are so easily lost at sea.

Do you think it might be used to make this cola?
