Last November, we brought you the article “Dangerous or Beneficial? Taking a Deeper Look into Energy Drinks,” analyzing the dangerous effects of alcoholic and caffeinated energy drinks, which lead to side effects and even death in some cases.
In response, the FDA contacted several energy drink manufacturers, concerned about the safety of their products. Now, after several months, those drinks, commonly referred to as “blackout in a can,” can be found back on the shelves…but has anything changed?
According to Omaha.com, the popular energy drinks Four Loko and Joose, which struck controversy on their alcohol and caffeine contents, are available again, but this time, they are caffeine-free.
The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau gave its stamp of approval to the drinks, which attract many consumers due to their alcohol content (which is three times that of beer) hidden by its fruit-flavor (http://www.omaha.com/article/20110322/NEWS01/703229933).
Although there is still debate on the energy drinks’ packaging, which appeals to underage drinkers due to its bright colors and encourage binge drinking, there is no controversy on the quality of service Road Scholar Transport provides in shipping your beverages.
With temperature protect services, shippers will have access to unlimited user-defined temperature alerts to ensure that your beverages remain fresh during transport.
What’s your opinion of energy drinks? Should there be tighter regulations?
