OTTAWA - Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are warning consumers not to buy two types of energy drinks, saying that utility knife blades were found in two vials in an apparent case of tampering.
The FDA said Sunday that the blades were found in one vial each of Hardcore Energize Bullet drink and New Whey liquid products. Both are being recalled.
Hardcore Energize Bullet, manufactured by Protica Inc., of Whitehall, Penn., is sold in Canada in two flavours, Blue Rage and Black Rush. New Whey is made and sold in the United States by IDS of Oviedo, Fla.
Health Canada says the unauthorized health product, imported by Upper 49th Imports, is sold at various retail outlets across Canada. The drink is packaged in 85.7 millilitre vials and is consumed in a shot form.

Upper 49th Imports' investigation involves the following four lot numbers of the two products: 1794, 1961, 1962, and 1963. No injuries have been reported as a result of the tampering.
