Such banned packaging might include products that resemble frozen flavored ice products gelatin products and non-alcoholic fruit sodas and drinks. BATF also announced it is developing legislation to strengthen its authority over alcohol labels. Under consideration is requiring the Government Warning Statement on alcohol beverage products be rotated among different messages. It will investigate other legislative options that would bolster its hand in combating alcohol marketing practices targeted at underage consumers or that encourage alcohol abuse.
