Subject: Gov Caffeine Regulations & Coffee?
 

Someone posted the link to the website caffeinetimes.com on my facebook page. Generally I don't read or click on that sort of thing but the subject line caught my eye. Is it really possible that the government will regulate and require caffeine content information on just a regular old cup of coffee? I run on coffee and the occassional energy drink. In a panic I found this forum so please excuse the question if it seems off topic. I didn't know where else to ask and this seems like the right place. I'm kinda bothered by the thought of more government regulation so posted on another forum so please excuse me if you see this somewhere else.  Thank you!

There are already FDA regulations regarding caffeine.  Here is an article on it:

I think the above article answers the question you raise.  At least for now, of course regs can always change.

Thank you for the additional information.  I read through the articles on the caffeinetimes.com website.  Pretty interesting stuff I thought.  It strange and a little scary how the world of politics can effect the simplest things in life. I would be curious to know if there really is a connection to Howard Schultz's political views and Sen Durbin's sudden interest in caffeine and energy drinks.  There was an article about that on the website.  Anyway, I'm calming down, but just got kind of spun up thinking about any kind of new regs on my coffee and occassional energy drink.  I actually like the effect I get from the little energy "shots" not the big cans.  Thanks again!
