Energy drink related emergency room visits have doubled since 2007. According to a recent government survey, an estimated 20,000 ER visits occurred for energy drink related complications (i.e. insomnia, fast heartbeat, irregular heartbeat, seizure, heart attack, etc). This is a 100% increase over the number of incidents in 2007.
Since energy drinks are considered a 'food supplement' opposed to a beverage, they adhere to an extremely loose set of regulations.
Our concern with the lack of regulation for energy drinks is shared by the FDA. They have recently begun an investigation into energy drinks and their ingredients.
Have the energy drink manufacturers acted negligently? Should they assume liability when, for example, they release a dangerous product to the market that is easily accessible by a minor, with no warnings on the label? We believe that they do have a responsibility. If you or family member has been negatively impacted by energy drinks, we would like to hear from you.
