Great news! The Oregon Liquor Control Commission voted 4-1 in favor of an immediate six month ban on seven alcoholic energy drinks. Here’s their wording:
“No licensee may sell or offer for sale Core High Gravity HG Green, Core High Gravity HG Orange, Lemon Lime Core Spiked, Moonshot, Four Loko, Joose and Max, which contain the “unsafe food additive” of caffeine and which were determined to be “adulterated” products on November 17, 2010 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ”
This is a great outcome. It’s a temporary ban that only applies to the products identified by the FDA, but it’s a terrific beginning.
Thanks to all those who helped bring decisive action on the part of the OLCC.
