(AP) -- Coca-Cola Company is bringing back its red cans after the limited-edition white can drew complaints from some Coke drinkers.

The world's largest beverage maker announced in October that it was turning its iconic red cans white as part of a campaign to protect polar bears and their habitats.

The white cans featured a family of polar bears and the company name in red. It was the first time Coca-Cola had changed the color of its cans on Coke away from red.

Some Coke fans complained that the white Coke cans looked too much like Diet Coke cans.
