Company pulling caffeinated gum after FDA concerns
The Wrigley Company is temporarily stopping production and sales of its new caffeinated gum.
The move is in response to concerns from the FDA about the impact of caffeine on children and teens.
Wrigley officials said it is removing its Alert Energy caffeine gum from store shelves to allow the government agency to develop regulations.
Each piece of the new gum contains 40 milligrams of caffeine which is equivalent to a half a cup of coffee.
