Sparking a Lawsuit


The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has filed a lawsuit against MillerCoors Brewing Company to stop it from selling its alcohol-energy drink, Sparks.  The complaint alleges that MillerCoors' advertising  and marketing violates the DC Consumer Protection Procedures Act by failing to state that Sparks (1) does not provide the claimed energy, (2) does not counteract the effects of alcohol, and (3) drinks such as Sparks increase the likelihood of alcohol-related consequences such as driving under the influence or being taken advantage of sexually.  The complaint further alleges that it is illegal to use caffeine, guarana, ginseng, and taurine in alcoholic beverages because those ingredients have not been recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as safe for such use.
