Monster energy drink Accused in/of marketing to children & Teen Death

description reads;
Prosecutors in New York and San Francisco are investigating whether the Monster Beverage Corporation is marketing its caffeinated drinks to kids. Dr. David Agus talks to the "CBS This Morning" co-hosts about the potential health risks, especially to children.


After drinking two large cans of Monster Energy Drink within 24 hours, 14-year-old Anais Fournier of Hagerstown, Md. died of cardiac arrest.

Gabe Silverman reports on the wrongful death and class action lawsuits filed by Anais's parents against the makers of Monster Energy Drink. Their lawyer, Kevin Goldberg of Goldberg, Finnegan & Mester says if the company had used a warning label that individuals with underlying heart conditions should not consume energy drinks, Anais would not be dead, today.

As reported in, Monster Energy Drink contains about 20 milligrams of caffeine per ounce. This means that there are 160 milligrams in an 8-ounce can, 320 in a 16-ounce can, 480 in a 24-ounce can and 960 in a 48-ounce can. By comparison, an 8-ounce cup of coffee contains 100 to 150 milligrams of caffeine.

Anais's death certificate notes she died of cardiac arrhythmia due to caffeine toxicity.

Her family's attorney claims Monster violates consumer protection laws and engages in false and deceptive advertising. He says the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate energy drinks, which are marketed to children and young adults.

Gabe provides recent federal government data showing an increase in ER visits due to energy drinks, exceeding 20,000 cases in 2011.
