Multiple Teen Deaths Linked to Monster Energy Drink
The FDA recently released an incident report claiming that five teens may have died after drinking the popular Monster Energy drink.
The reports were recently obtained by Wendy Crossland, mom of a Maryland girl, 14 who died from a heart arrhythmia after drinking Monster Energy drinks for two days.
FDA spokeswoman, Shelly Burgess backed the claims saying that reported deaths may have been possibly linked to the energy drink, although she also cautions that other factors may have been involved
Burgess also adds that Monster Beverage was responsible for investigating these deaths as it relates to their products. FDA has not found a direct causal link between the product and the deaths.
Monster Beverage makes a variety of energy drinks that are labelled “not recommended” for some people, including children.
