Wrigley’s pulls gum

There were concerns as soon as it was announced, and now Wrigley’s is pulling its new line of caffeinated gum from shelves.  This after the FDA expressed concerns about caffeine’s effect on children and adolescents.   A stick of the gum equals about as much caffeine as half a cup of coffee.   Wrigleys will stop making, selling and marketing the gum, which was introduced earlier this month.

    Is the FDA not concerned about the caffeine's effect in so called soft drinks? How about hot chocolate and chocolate bars.

    How about the billion dollar health food industry. The fine print on every vitamin bottle states the product is not regulated by the FDA.
    However, when there is a suspicious death related to a vitamin supplement, the FDA takes action.
