On September 30, 2009, the International Trade Commission issued a notice determining not to review the September 8, 2009 Initial Determination (“ID”) issued by Chief ALJ Paul J. Luckern granting a motion filed by Complainants Red Bull GmbH and Red Bull North America (collectively, “Red Bull”) to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to add six new respondents in Certain Energy Drink Products (Inv. No. 337-TA-678).

As explained in our September 11 post, Red Bull’s motion sought to add the following respondents:  Posh Nosh Imports (USA), Greenwich, Inc., Advantage Food Distributors, Ltd., Wheeler Trading, Inc., Avalon International General Trading, LLC, and Central Supply, Inc. (“Central”).  According to the notice, no petitions for review were filed in connection with ALJ Luckern’s September 8 ID. 

Accordingly, in the September 30 notice, the ITC “determined not to review the subject ID.”
