GREEN HORNET WARNING

May 1, 2004

The Food and Drug Administration said consumers should stay away from Green Hornet, a liquid pitched as an herbal form of the illegal drug ecstasy. The agency has received reports of four teens taking Green Hornet and being hospitalized for seizures, excessive heart rates, severe body rashes, and high blood pressure. The FDA said the herbal liquid, sold on the Internet and in stores, is illegal because it contains active drugs not listed on the label and because Green Hornet claims to be an alternative to a street drug.
