Energy drinks under scrutiny after FDA released findings

| No Comments

The Food and Drug Administration released fatality and injury findings on Thursday related to the use of popular energy drinks, the New York Times reported.

The filings included references to Rockstar Energy, 5-Hour Energy and Monster Energy drinks, according to the New York Times.

The Washington Post said that the FDA has received 92 reports over the course of four years that included hospitalizations and even death after consumption of the 5-Hour Energy drink. Monster Energy may have also played a part in five deaths and one heart attack.

The New York Times reported that a filing with the FDA does not confirm that the product caused the illness or death, however.

The Washington Post reported that the FDA does not individually regulate caffeinated beverages.
