Is 5-hour ENERGY Killing Folks?

Thirteen deaths have been reported to the Food and Drug Administration as "adverse events" after the consumption of the dietary supplement 5-hour ENERGY, according to an FDA statement.

While anyone can report an adverse event, and although no cause-and-effect relationship has been established, the FDA said it is investigating, as is required by law. A report does not mean a product is responsible for or that it contributed to any health issue. "If we find a relationship between consumption of the product and harm, FDA will take appropriate action to reduce or eliminate the risk," the FDA said. "While the FDA investigates all reports to the best of its ability, it does not always have access to all the information needed to conclusively determine the cause of the event."

As a dietary supplement, 5-hour ENERGY is not required to disclose the amount of caffeine in its 2-ounce "energy shot." Instead, the 5-hour ENERGY label lists 1,870 milligrams of an "Energy Blend," which includes caffeine, taurine and other ingredients.

  1. Mattzabo Killed my butthole- there was NO condim with in 67 feet of my wretched body

  2. Yes it is killing people, and part of the shit the put in 5 hr energy its on redbull and monsters drinks too

  3. Right. Energy drinks are suddenly killing people even though they've been safely consumed for nearly 15 years. But go ahead and give little kids adderall (amphetamine) and ritalin (methylphenidate, structurally similar to amphetamine) because they're a little spastic. Get them hooked early, especially the gay ones, so they can hop right on the meth when they come out of the closet. Brilliant.

  4. If you're stupid enough to drink this Nast shit, then you deserve whatever befalls you. It tastes like cat piss.
    If you really need an energy boost, just do what 95% of the queens in Weho do already: break out the Tina pipe and smoke a gram or so.
    You'll have 5 hours of energy, all right!
    Plus about 25 more hours.

  5. When will people learn that consuming battery acid instead of healthful foods and drinks will only hurt your body? Jesus, maybe we weren't born with instruction manuals but it's still pretty obvious: keep a proper diet and get some exercise.
