FDA Publishes Energy Drink Data

Put down that Rockstar. On Thursday, the Food and Drug Administration released records about fatality and injury filings that may involve three big-market energy drinks. A day earlier, The New York Times revealed the FDA had more than 90 filings linking 5-Hour Energy as possibly involved in 13 fatalities. “In an effort to be transparent” the agency published the records, which include 13 files about Rockstar Energy drink that had not previously been released. Two senators have requested the FDA discuss tightening energy drink regulations.
