(Manhattan, NY) -- Senator Charles Schumer is urging federal regulators to look into "snortable chocolate" powder, saying he's worried that it could prove harmful and is being marketed like a drug.
In a letter Saturday, the New York Democrat asked the Food and Drug Administration to investigate the use of caffeine in inhalable food products, such as so-called Coco Loko. It's gotten buzz in recent weeks. Schumer says there are too many unanswered questions about a product pitched under the innocent-sounding name of chocolate.
