THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER – A Colorado high school banned Spike Shooter energy drink from its campus and a convenience store chain stopped selling it in the state after students who consumed the product complained of “feeling sick or fidgety,” officials said.”It was pretty bad there for a while, there were four or five days (last week) where we were having one or two students a day coming in,” said Dennis Vigil, assistant principal at Doherty High School in Colorado Springs.Some of the students were taken to hospitals, but Vigil said all recovered within a few hours and appeared to suffer no lasting problems. He said no further complaints were reported after the school sent home letters to parents explaining that some students had become ill.7-Eleven Inc. pulled the drink from all 222 of its company-owned stores in Colorado after Doherty High School asked 7-Eleven stores near the school to limit sales to students.
