Mom & Dad Monster Beverage Not to Be Taken Lightly


The AP (6/26) reports, “The mother of a teenager who died from cardiac arrhythmia last year is blaming his death on Monster Beverage, alleging in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that his death was caused by habitually drinking the company’s energy drink.” Alex Morris, 9, “went into cardiac arrest during the early morning hours of July 1 and was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.” The suit, which was filed in the Alameda County Superior Court, “alleges Morris would not have died if he did not drink two cans of Monster’s energy drink every day for the three years before his death, including the day he died.” This is the second lawsuit filed against Monster. The first one was filed last October by the family of 14-year-old Anais Fournier, who also allegedly drank two can’s of the company’s energy drink prior to her death.
