In light of recent health scares Australian federal and state governments are considering mandatory health warnings on energy drinks.

If adopted manufacturers will be required to reveal the caffeine level in drinks and the recommended daily intake of the drug. Labels will also carry a warning, advising that the drinks are not suitable for children, pregnant or breast-feeding women or people sensitive to caffeine.

The proposal is to be discussed at a meeting of the health ministers' council this week
