I am very concerned with your proposed agreement to endorse the new single-serving drink standard with Phusion Products. Such a standard defies current federal drinking guidelines, as well as public health research. The proposed agreement would allow large-sized, single serving alcopops to remain on the market with window dressing on the label and a resealable top. In light of the evidence about the dangers of supersized alcopops, especially with underage drinkers, this agreement is unacceptable. Please withdraw this agreement and require much stronger changes from Phusion Products and other alcopop producers to protect public safety and health.
