Senator calls for crackdown on caffeinated peanut butter

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -
Senator Chuck Schumer is looking for an FDA review of peanut butter infused with caffeine billed as a fitness booster.
The New York congressman says he wants to the government to crackdown on "Steem" the peanut butter that combines protein with an energy boost. 
Senator Schumer also wants the EPA to investigate the product to see if it should have a warning label because it has 5X the caffeine as a single can of soda.
"Do not feed this peanut butter to your child," the Senator said when talking about the product.
The company that produces Steem says they welcome Senator Schumer's call for review and they believe Steem is safe when used as directed.
