    'Cocaine' Drink Is Pulled From Shelves


    An FDA spokeswoman said she could not comment because the matter is still pending.

    Fans responded to the announcement that Redux would stop marketing Cocaine by leaving dozens of messages, many of them profanity-laced, on a page created for the product on the social networking site MySpace.com.

    The energy drink is the first product marketed by Redux, which wants to keep the name Cocaine because it fits with the company's tongue-in-cheek approach, Ivey said.

    "We like to think we have a great sense of humor," he said. "And our market, primarily folks from ages 20 to 30, they love the ideas, they love the name, they love the whole campaign. These are not drug users."

    As long as there isn't Cocaine or illegal drugs in the product I don't agree with this move. There are thousands of products that do much worse and no one touches. Damn politicians and their agendas.

    Oh well its just another stupid energy drink the kids are hooked on these days. Yes it is ridiculous that they are pulling it because of the name of the drink, but I'm guessing thats what attracts their consumers. Just sugar, caffiene and taurine, like all the over priced energy drinks out there now. I would rather have a coffee from Dunkin D.

    So they just pulled it off the shelves because of the name?

    Then AFTER pulling it off the shelves [because of the name], they want to check the ingredients in the formula, did I get that right?

    The FDA's priorities are screwed off the top like bottle caps. When the FDA starts regulating the supplement industry, I'll take my hat off to them. Until then, I'll frown at their reasoning.
