Couche-Tard pulls alcoholic drink after Quebec girl’s death

MONTREAL—Quebec-based convenience store chain Couche-Tard has decided to voluntarily pull an alcoholic beverage from its shelves.
The company announced in a statement on Friday that it has asked its retailers to stop selling FCKD UP because of what it called “recent events.”
The announcement came hours after the body of a 14-year-old girl was pulled from a stream near her high school in Laval, Que., this week.
Police said the girl died accidentally, but Montreal’s La Presse reported the teen had been drinking stolen cans of the sweetened alcoholic beverage before her death.
Couche-Tard said in the statement that selling the beverage is legal and the chain pulled it from the shelves out of a desire to act responsibly.
Laval police are still awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine the girl’s exact cause of death.
