BERLIN (AP) — Six German states have told retailers to stop selling Red Bull Cola energy drinks after a test found a trace amount of cocaine.

The bans started Friday after a sample test conducted by authorities in North Rhine-Westphalia state found 0.4 micrograms per liter in the drink.

Five other states also banned it from shops amid concerns over possible narcotics law violations.

Red Bull Cola company has come out and protested against the action of taking their product off the shelves saying that the flavouring is used worldwide in foods.

How silly. Coca leaf should be legal as a flavoring agent.

0.4 ug/L is minuscule. retarded.

This does explain why a kid who used to be on my soccer team died from having too many redbulls though, though... I think all energy drinks taste like shit though personally.

No it doesn't. You're full of shit.

The minimal dose of cocaine someone can die from is 30 mg (http://www.sdrl.com/druglist/cocaine.html). On average the lethal dose of cocaine is 1.2 grams (see same source). If the concentration of cocaine in red bull is 0.4 ug/L he would have had to drink 75000 liters to even achieve the minimal lethal dose.

He didnt state it directly, but he said it didnt taste like shit and was very gung-ho about defending it. Plus I hired a private-eye, who took this picture:

Pretty sure all he did was correct your idiocy.

Also, can you read? He never said anything about the taste.

I wish sarcasm translated better to the internet :blah

Edit: He died because his heart gave out while doing a long distance run, the red bull did add to it. (But wasn't the cause) he simply had a bad heart.
