More than 20 types of energy drink now included in Canadian recall – CBC

Canadian Food Inspection Agency says products might not be safe because of caffeine content

Aug 30, 2023

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has widened its recall of energy drinks to include more than 25 brands, warning the products might not be safe to consume because of their caffeine content.

The agency expanded its recall notice on Tuesday to include brands such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Toxic Rick and Bob Ross. CFIA started recalling the drinks in July because they don’t follow requirements around caffeine content and don’t label their products in both English and French.

“High levels of caffeine may have adverse health effects for children, pregnant individuals, breastfeeding individuals, and those sensitive to caffeine,” the notice said.

The post said people shouldn’t serve, sell or drink the products. It said officials haven’t seen any reported illnesses, but the announcement said they decided on the recall after Health Canada ran a risk assessment.
