FDA: Caffeinated alcoholic drinks may be illegal
(CNN) -- The Food and Drug Administration has notified about 30 manufacturers of alcoholic beverages containing added caffeine that it intends to take a look at their products.
The question is not only if these products -- such as 24/7 made by Mix Master Beverage Co. and Joose by United Brands Co. -- are safe, but also whether it is even legal to add caffeine to such drinks, the agency says.
In September, 18 attorneys general from states including Connecticut, Utah, California and New York sent a letter to the FDA outlining why they consider such drinks dangerous. They were joined by a number of doctors and scientists who have conducted research on the subject.
So whats next? Start dictating what type of drink the bartender can mix?
