MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Nov. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FITT Highway Products, Inc. (OTCQB:FHWY) (the "Company") has retained F.I.T.T. Energy Products Inc. ("FITT") to perform the majority of its operating functions. Currently the Company receives a small royalty from FITT's sales of "F.I.T.T. Energy for Life", one of the three unique medical doctor-designed energy shots being sold by FITT in the retail marketplace. In reaction to recent developments in the energy drink industry, FITT has asserted that its product line is fundamentally different from those being scrutinized by the City of San Francisco, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The recent press is available at the following link Monster 5-Hour-Energy .
According to Michael R. Dunn, FITT's CEO, "F.I.T.T. Energy was born of the same concern exhibited by San Francisco City Attorney Dennis J. Herrera's letter to Monster Energy and the recent probe initiated by the FDA." Dunn added, "If you read Herrera's letter to Monster Energy it addresses among other issues the levels of caffeine in the product. We have created a product that avoids what we felt were potentially dangerous and unhealthy levels of caffeine while uniquely adding the proven health benefits of Resveratrol. F.I.T.T.'s use of vasodilators to increase blood flow also helps mitigate other health concerns that we presume are at the heart of San Francisco's inquiry."
"We firmly believe we are Energy Drink 2.0," said Dunn. "More effective, safer, and with added health benefits that consumers should indeed want to ingest." The FITT line of products and ingredients can be viewed at www.throwafitt.com .
In July, three energy drink companies received subpoenas from the New York's attorney general. Subpoenas were sent to Monster, PepsiCo and Living Essentials LLC. PepsiCo manufactures AMP energy drink and Living Essentials manufactures 5 Hour Energy Attorney General in New York .
"We are deeply troubled by reports that individuals may have lost their lives as a result of excessive consumption of energy drinks," F.I.T.T. president Michael R. Dunn stated. "And it is important for the general public to understand that the phrase 'energy drink' covers a broad and diverse spectrum of beverages that use an array of ingredients in a wide range of quantities. We believe we are at the opposite end of that spectrum from those being examined by San Francisco and the FDA in numerous and fundamental ways."
