Knife Blades Found in Energy Drinks:
Hardcore Energize Bullet Drink and New Whey Liquid Products

Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are warning consumers not to buy two types of energy drinks, saying that utility knife blades were found in two vials in an apparent case of tampering. The FDA said Sunday that the blades were found in one vial each of Hardcore Energize Bullet drink and New Whey liquid products. Both are being recalled. Hardcore Energize Bullet, manufactured by Protica Inc., of Whitehall, Penn., is sold in Canada in two flavours, Blue Rage and Black Rush. New Whey is made and sold in the United States by IDS of Oviedo, Fla. Health Canada says the unauthorized health product, imported by Upper 49th Imports, is sold at various retail outlets across Canada. The drink is packaged in 85.7 millilitre vials and is consumed in a shot form. The manufacturer is investigating this incident and Health Canada has requested Upper 49th Imports to recall all the affected products from the market. Upper 49th Imports' investigation involves the following four lot numbers of the two products: 1794, 1961, 1962, and 1963. No injuries have been reported as a result of the tampering.

I knew many energy drinks claim to be "Cutting edge"...I guess now we know why!

This has really shocked me, especially such a thing being done in the western world. I didnt expect such a sily thing to happen from that side of the world. How can you package food with blades surely, am shocked.

Thank God this is not from Africa because the negative publicity it could get, i think those companies could just close down.

They look like blades of dissection knives. I work part-time in a college setting up experiments that involve dissecting fetal pigs and I KNOW !
We should boycott ANY product from China as well.

People who put knife blades in drinks for the purpose of hurting or killing innocent people should have their throats cut with the very same blades.

Energy drink says "AH CUT YOU, MUH-FU$%AH!", then cuts you in the throat.

I think it's a shame that people are so board and ignorant that they do stupid things to hurt innocent people. I don't care where they're from or who ends up with the drinks - no one deserves to be injured by someone's else's stupidity.
