(SILVER SPRING, Md.) -- Warnings from the Food and Drug Administration to the manufacturers of caffeinated alcoholic beverages, like the popular and much criticized Four Loko, have not fallen on deaf ears.
The FDA Wednesday announced that “significant progress” has been made after four manufacturers were warned that the addition of caffeine to alcoholic beverages was not approved.
Phusion Projects, the maker of Four Loko, has advised the FDA that it has stopped shipments of its products and expects to have them off store shelves by Dec. 13.
The maker of another highly popular drink, Joose, expects to have its products off of shelves on the same day. United Brands has also informed the FDA that it no longer markets Max, another caffeinated alcoholic beverage.
