States including Ohio urge federal energy drink crackdown
(2007-08-21)
(WOUB) - Ohio is joining 27 other states in asking
federal regulators to crack down on the makers of energy drinks that contain alcohol and caffeine.

The 28 attorneys general are accusing the drink-makers of producing misleading advertising for a product that can pose
serious health and safety risks.

The state officials and their counterparts in Guam and D.C. say
that aggressive marketing of alcoholic energy drinks targets young people who now buy energy drinks without alcohol.

A Miller Brewing spokesman says its Sparks energy drink was created only for customers who are of legal drinking age.
