"The announcement came as the FDA is expected to find as early as Wednesday that caffeine is an unsafe food additive to alcoholic drinks."
So what they'll going to ban coffee drinks and soda too?!!
They shouldn't be worrying about this and be concerned on REAL issues that are affecting us.

if you would have read the story right, you would have noticed that it's not the caffeine alone that they're concerned about, it's the combination of caffeine with alcohol that causes a bad reaction.. those two combined don't go together.. one's a downer and the other is an energizer.

This is to" what the buck". The article and the quote you put on you comment clearly states CAFFEINE IS A UNSAFE FOOD ADDITIVE TO ALCOHOLIC DRINKS. Last time I checked coffee and sodas do not come with alcohol. Read and understand what you are reading before you comment and make yourself sound ignorant.
Now in regards to FDA pulling these drinks its about time. They are poison the combination of alcohol and caffeine destroys your organs and causes you to become intoxicated alot faster. Alcohol is a sedative it is supposed to bring you down. Caffeine brings you up combine the two in your body at the same time and you got yourself a nice little problem.

So its the government's job to keep people from mixing caffeine and alcohol? How are they going to ban Yager-bombs or any other mixtures of the two drugs? Just more big government for you. Big brother gonna take care of us poor ignorant common folk...... or will we still do it anyway? BTW, which one is the poison when they're both legally sold separately and can be mixed by anyone?

if you ever took chemistry you would have noticed that there are certain chemicals that when combined, they can be lethal.. you don't have to go too far, there are household products that you can mix to make dangerous and/or toxic substances.. so just because clorox is legal doesn't mean it's not dangerous when combined with another substance..

The only people being harmed are dirty minorities...let them have their "jungle juices." Why is this country out to help the lower class, if they knew any better they would get themselves out of their ghettos and make something out of their welfare driven lives. It's simple darwinism in the works...only the strong survive.

What are the chances that people will start stocking up on this product before it is pulled off the shelves in order to sell it themselves (clandestine) for a hefty profit?

People have the right to put whatever the hell they want into their bodies. If you're stupid enough to keep drinking alcohol and caffeine until you end up in the hospital then its your fault. It's called responsiblility. Parents - teach it to your children!

Dear John,

You are an arrogant bigot. It's 2010 not 1950. Why do you care what the name of the drink is? That's not the issue here. But since we are all out to make money, my new drink is a tribute to all like you. It's called hoity-toity white boy. Want me to call you when it hits the shelves?

Hypocrite, call me an arrogant bigot then name a drink called hoity-toity white boy. Really? I'm surprised somebody with a minority background like you could use a computer and actually know how to write too. You should go back to your five kids from different dads and feed them government cheese sandwiches. You're the reason they need to build bigger walls along the border and add more border partol to keep trash like you out of my White America.

I agree, its not the governments responsibility to make sure ppl dont "poison" themselves. The drink is perfectlly legal as is rum and coke, jager bombs, or any other combo of alcohol and caffeine. Ppl are just too stupid to control themselves.

Mr. John THomas!

You don't have to be poor or rich to like these drinks. People like them because they want to get drunk. And "dirty minorities" .... Wow... I'd rather have them running around than ignorant douchebags like yourself. Please do everyone a favor and kill yourself, you're prob ugly anyway.

Aren't cigarettes equally as dangerous if not worse than these energy drinks.... And if cigarettes ARE worse why isn't as easy to ban them like the energy drinks ..???

This is crazy. Who cares what people do to their own bodies. If someone wants to drink caffine laced booze, while smoking, eating transfat, and playing with a happy meal toy...who cares. It's personal responsibility. If that person dies from it, then that's their fault for not taking any personal responsibility.

Oh and here is a fact one of you may not like hearing that is THE TRUTH. By 2050, over 50% of the US population will be people of color, with over 30% of that being hispanic. And there is nothing you, the Border Patrol, or anyone can do to stop that.
