During a hearing to discuss a prohibition on energy drinks in the city, a Chicago City Council committee reportedly decided to further consider the matter at a later date before taking a vote. The proposed ordinances include one introduced in January 2013 by Alderman Edward Burke that would prohibit the sale of drinks with 180 or more milligrams of caffeine and containing the alleged stimulants taurine or guarana. Committee Chair George Cardenas and Alderman William Burns previously introduced another proposal that would prohibit the sale of energy drinks to anyone younger than age 21. Details about Burke’s proposal appear in Issue 468 of this Update. See Chicago Tribune, March 6, 2013; TimeNewsFeed.com, March 7, 2013.
