MillerCoors Backs Down On Sparks

  • December 18, 2008
The company has agreed to remove the caffeine and other ingredients from its Sparks line of alcohol energy drinks in a deal with 13 states and the City of San Francisco.

The state attorneys general argued that the stimulants reduced drinkers' sense of intoxication and were marketed to young people.

MillerCoors also agreed to not produce such beverages in the future. It will pay $550,000 to cover investigation costs.--Nina Lentini
