These drinks are being drunk by teens. This is the best way I can see to make sure we have another generation of alcoholics in this country. Are they paying you to OK this" This is the equivalent of 2.5 servings. that is more than the current federal standards for one drink per day for females, and two drinks per day for males.
Putting a resealable cap on a single-serving container will not discourage drinkers from consuming the entire can at one time. These are not half-gallon containers of milk or juice from which drinkers pour just one glass. These products are sold in convenience store coolers, intended for immediate consumption.
This proposed order does nothing to solve the fundamental problem with these products. The sweetened alcoholic beverages with up to 12% alcohol content will still be sold in 23.5 ounce containers.
Worse than taking no action at all, with this consent order, the FTC will undermine public safety and health.
