Yahoo is reporting that six Germany states told retailers to pull the popular Red Bull energy from their store shelves after testing shows trace amounts of cocaine. 

The bans started Friday after a sample test conducted by authorities in North Rhine-Westphalia state found 0.4 micrograms per liter in the drink.

Five other states also banned it from shops amid concerns over possible narcotics law violations.

Red Bull states that its colas are harmless.
