Four Loko releases statement announcing the removal of caffeine from its products

The Associated Press reports that the popular alcoholic beverage Four Loko announced Nov. 16 that it will remove the caffeine from its products on the heels of news the FDA is set to ban it.
Phusion Projects, based in Chicago, said in a statement on its website that they will remove caffeine and two other ingredients from its products. The FDA is expected to announce Nov. 17 that caffeine is an unsafe food additive to alcoholic beverages, which would essentially ban Four Loko and drinks like it.
Four states — Washington, Michigan,

Utah and Oklahoma — have banned the beverages in response to incidents in which college students were hospitalized after drinking the beverages.
A 23.5-ounce can of Four Loko sells for about $2.50 and has an alcohol content of 12 percent, comparable to four beers, according to the company’s website.
