LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- All alcohol energy drinks must be off Michigan store shelves by midnight Friday to comply with a state ban.
The Michigan Liquor Control Commission announced last month it was banning sale of the drinks because of concerns that the beverages create health risks.
The Food and Drug Administration is requiring major brands of caffeinated alcoholic drinks to be taken off store shelves nationally by mid-December because of similar concerns.
The agency says the combination of caffeine and alcohol in the drinks can lead to a "wide-awake drunk" and alcohol poisoning, car accidents and assaults.
At least four states have banned the drinks.
The state action affects more brands than the federal ban. Eleven products were removed Thursday from the state's list of banned drinks.
