Dear Wendy Shay Official, The guidelines on the advertisement of food states clearly that no well-known personality or professional shall be used in alcoholic beverage advertisement. The FDA is not trying to take food away from your mouth but rather trying to protect the young ones who idolise you from the abuse of alcohol. On the other hand, we can collaborate with you to use your influence to educate the youth against alcohol abuse. FDA….Your Well-being, Our Priority.”, the wrote on their Facebook page.
