AUSTRIA: Red Bull silent on contamination report
Red Bull is based in Vienna
Red Bull has refused to comment directly on reports it has been the victim of threats to contaminate its products in Austria.
The Vienna-based energy drinks maker is working with police after perpetrators claimed to have tampered with Red Bull products in stores, Sky News reported on Friday (15 March). The company said the threats, which started weeks ago, were so far unfounded, according to the report.
Contacted by just-drinks today, Red Bull acknowledged a probe was taking place but said: “Please understand that we are unable to make any further comment while the investigation continues.”
