5-Hour Energy Drink Linked to 13 US Deaths.

Officials from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) said on Wednesday, November 14, that 5-Hour Energy, a popular energy drink, may have contributed to the wrongful deaths of at least 13 people over the past 4 years. 

The FDA said that 5-Hour Energy has been linked to more than 90 cases of personal injuries reported to the FDA, including heart attacks, convulsions and even a spontaneous abortion.

This FDA report comes just one month after the FDA announced that it was investigating another energy drink, Monster Energy, for its potential role in at least 5 other wrongful deaths.

The US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration found in a recent study that energy drinks were blamed for more than 13,000 hospital visits in 2009 alone.
