MANILA, Philippines -- Initial testing of a popular energy drink brand showed no traces of cocaine, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency said Friday.

PDEA Director General Dionisio Santiago said the first batch of Red Bull Supreme samples had no trace amounts of cocaine, as circulated online.

The agency is in the process of checking other samples from the Bureau of Food and Drugs to make sure that the energy drink is clean.

?Based on the initial report from the PDEA Laboratory Service, the samples of [Red Bull Supreme] energy drink submitted by a pharmaceutical and health shop [Watson?s] yielded negative results for the presence of cocaine,? said Santiago.

Results of the new tests are expected on Monday.

?While the initial results have already been released, the PDEA joins its counterparts from the BFAD in warning the public to exercise extreme caution in consuming any energy drinks pending the final results of the tests on these products,? Santiago said.
