A Dallas County District Court has issued a temporary injunction halting a Nevada company and its Texas distributors from selling its “Cocaine” energy drink in Texas. The agreed injunction, which was sought by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, prohibits Redux Beverages and its distributors, from marketing, warehousing and distributing the drink, a product the court deems may be an unapproved drug.
“Texans have zero tolerance for those who peddle products meant to mimic illegal drugs,” said Attorney General Abbott. “This advertising campaign enticed young people with illegal drug references and false claims of health benefits. The Office of Attorney General will continue to aggressively enforce this state’s consumer protection laws to ensure that Texans will not be deceived by the marketing of unapproved drugs.”
