San Francisco sues Monster for selling a legal product

San Francisco attacks a business for selling a legal product
Following in New York's footsteps, the Food Police nuts of San Francisco attack a successful business for daring to sell a legal product to the people.

The Leftist Food Police in Action  -  A fight between Monster Beverage and San Francisco's city attorney is intensifying. The city attorney is filing a lawsuit against Monster Beverage Corp, the maker of Monster Energy Drinks, accusing the company of marketing their legal product to young children.

Oh the horror!  Won't somebody please think of the children?

Leftist loon City Attorney Dennis Herrera said Monday that Monster has dared to market its highly caffeinated drinks to children as young as 6 years old, despite scientific findings that such products can cause health problems including severe cardiac events.  (Those so-called "findings" are 100% pure Leftist Bullshit by the way.)

The lawsuit comes after Monster last week sued Herrera over his demands that it reduce the caffeine levels in its drinks and stop marketing to minors reports CBS News.

On Monday, Herrera noted that his office had been working with Monster in "good faith to negotiate voluntary changes" when the company abruptly filed its lawsuit.

"Our lawsuit is not a reaction to their lawsuit," Herrera said in an interview. "We were proceeding on this path in the event that we would be unable to come to a resolution."

Monster said in a statement Monday that that the issues raised by Herrera are matters that are entrusted to the regulatory authority of the FDA. It said Herrera's demands on Monster are pre-empted by federal law.

Monster has been in the spotlight since October 2012, when the parents of 14-year-old Anais Fournier of Hagerstown, Md. sued the company after their daughter went into cardiac arrest after drinking two of popular energy drinks in 24 hours.

The FDA said in Oct. 2012 it was investigating five deaths and one heart attack linked to Monster Energy Drinks dating back to 2004. One can contains about 240 milligrams of caffeine.

The company denied its drink's role in the girl's death in March, with company lawyer Daniel Callahan telling the Associated Press at the time that physicians hired to review the girl's case determined she died from natural causes, brought on by pre-existing heart conditions.

Not to be out done, the Leftist New York's attorney general has subpoenaed energy drink makers including Monster about how the drinks are made and marketed, and Democratic Senators Richard Durbin of Illinois and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut have repeatedly called on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to look into the safety of the drinks.

Business must be crushed!
Leftist San Francisco says Monster Beverage Corporation is guilty of daring to sell legal products to the people, creating employment for workers and generating $1.7 Billion in sales.  These evil capitalist acts must be addressed by the People's Representatives.
