BANGLADESH: Govt pulls 'energy' drinks - report
The Bangladeshi Government has suspended the production and sale of alcoholic energy drinks in the country, according to press reports. Agence France Presse reported over the weekend that sales of Crown and Hunter, known as energy drinks because they contain less than 5% alcohol, were stopped on Friday. The Government wants to verify the alcohol content of these drinks, the agency said.
A spokesman told AFP that the licence to produce these energy drinks has been withdrawn and the producers have been asked to reapply for a new certificate from the Bangladesh Standard and Testing Institution.
The energy drinks had been available for almost half the price of beer.
