Area authorities are trying to get the drinks out of convenience stores, and onto the shelves of liquor stores.
Four Loko and other flavored malt beverages are back on store shelves. Manufacturers have removed the caffeine at the insistence of the Food and Drug Administration, but the drinks referred to by some as binge in can still contain 12 percent alcohol.
The inexpensive, sugary, flavored beverages are also popular with underage drinkers. This winter a high school freshman in Stamford was hospitalized after drinking Four Loko on school grounds.
It's another battle in the fight against underage drinking.
