In light of a looming possible federal ban of caffeinated alcoholic drinks, the makers of Four Loko beverages have announced they are changing their formula – and taking out the energy.
Phusion Projects of Chicago has announced it is removing the caffeine, taurine, and guarana from all of its Four Loko beverages. Those are the stimulant ingredients.
What will be left is a tall beer with 12.5% alcohol by volume. Some say this is a good first step, but point out: now there will simply be a very big, very strong beer on the market – which could also prove dangerous.
