Monster Beverage Corp. dealing with fallout from FDA reports
Five people may have died in the past three years after drinking Monster Energy, according to reports released by the FDA. The reports do not prove a link between Monster Energy and the deaths or health problems. The mother of a 14-year-old Maryland girl who died from a heart arrhythmia after drinking Monster Energy on two consecutive days sued the company. A spokeswoman for Monster Beverage said last week that its products were safe and not the cause of the girl’s death.
