Five-hour Energy linked to 13 deaths and one abortion in last three years claims FDA report

Thirteen deaths have been linked to the consumption of 5-Hour energy drinks according to a report by the Food and Drug Administration just weeks after a eerily similar report involving caffeinated drinks and death.

Caffeinated brew: A series of reports dating to 2009 have linked 5-Hour Energy drinks to 13 deaths according to the Food and Drug Administration

With the fatalities the energy ‘shot’ has been additionally linked to heart attacks, convulsions and in one case a spontaneous abortion according to 90 filings with the FDA released to the New York Times this week.

The reports covering the last three years come just weeks after popular brand Monster Energy was similarly linked by the FDA to five deaths including of a 14-year-old Maryland girl.

Five-hour energy, who voluntarily submitted their incident reports to the FDA complying with a 2008 regulation, has noted no deaths proven to be caused by the two-ounce ‘shot.’

The FDA’s director of dietary supplement programs said on Wednesday that the agency is looking into the death reports, including the direct link to each possible victim.
