We respectfully request that FTC withdraw this agreement based on lack of science, as well as lack of support from the public and the public health community and other industry members, and instead propose a more effective solution to these problems.
Surely you understand that these drinks are marketed to young people who are incredibly vulnerable to the allure of such drinks and at at risk of binge drinking already at a time when their brains are still developing. Alcohol fundamentall changes the brain. You are are apparently endorsing 2.5 drinks as an acceptable amount, ignoring current federal standards for one per day for females, and two per day for males. A label listing is completely laughable as a deterrent for someone to drink less than the entire can at one time. We only have to look at food products to know that will not infuence anyone. A resealable cap on a small can" Let's just call it what it is - silly. no deterrent whatsoever.
Worse than taking no action at all, with this consent order, the FTC will undermine public safety and health - particularly for young people.
Please reconsider this agreement in light of the harm it can do - because it surely will.
