The Food Inspection Agency has recalled 20 energy drinks

(OTTAWA) The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is expanding its energy drink recall to include more than 20 brands.


The recall was initiated in July because some of the drinks failed to meet varying caffeine content and bilingual labeling requirements.

Brands like Sonic the Hedgehog, Toxic Rick and Liquid Rage have been added to the list in recent days.

Other caffeinated energy drinks, including Monster and Prime, have been part of previous recall notices.

An advisory issued Tuesday says the public should not consume, serve or sell the recalled beverages.

Health Canada warns that high levels of caffeine can cause negative health effects in children, pregnant or breastfeeding people, people who are sensitive to caffeine and people who exercise while consuming it.

Side effects of caffeine include insomnia, irritability, headaches and nervousness, the agency said.

The recall notice states that no illnesses have been caused by energy drinks.

A full list of problematic energy drinks can be found on the Government of Canada’s Recalls and Safety Alerts website.
