Red Bull and the wings of Icarus

This story, from the site news.com.au, tells of Cocaine being allegedly found in Red Bull Cola.

The ‘energy’ drink has long marketed itself as giving you wings.

The line is so popular that it is even referenced in Eminem’s new album, though likely in irony somehow.

According to the article: “Six German states have ordered retailers to stop selling the beverage and more are expected to follow this week.”

A brand with the wings of Icarus perhaps?

Not an image Red Bull would like I imagine.

The story also covers potential health fears around the product, here.
