American Beverage Association Statement on Caffeinated Energy Drinks
Date:9/23/2008

WASHINGTON, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to "Caffeinated Energy Drinks -- A growing problem," a study to be published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, the American Beverage Association (ABA) issued the following statement:

So those suggesting that energy drinks should require warning labels need to be aware of the slippery slope this would create: to be consistent, products at coffeehouses also would require such unnecessary labeling.

It's unhelpful to the public that the authors would combine certain extreme products with illicit or suggestive names with other more mainstream energy drinks in an effort to sensationalize and demonize the entire product category and gain exposure for their work.
