Officials with the Food and Drug Administration are looking into the cause of death of five separate cases that come are linking to Monster Energy Drinks.

According to the reports being analyzed, people have had adverse reactions after consuming the popular drink, which contains 240 milligrams of caffeine – seven times the amount of caffeine found in a 12-ounce cola. The drink is packaged in a 24-ounce can.

Along with the deaths, the FDA is also investigating a non-fatal heart attack that is also being attributed to the popular beverage.

Authorities are quick to caution the public that at this point, the allegations and the possible link to Monster Energy Drinks hasn’t been established.  However, medical officials do warn against the potential dangers of over-consumption of beverages with a high caffeine content – especially for young people.
