FDA spokeswoman Shelly Burgess said that 5 hour Energy, sold by Living Essentials, has been mentioned in some 90 FDA filings since 2009, including more than 30 that involved serious or life-threatening events like heart attacks, convulsions, and in one case, a spontaneous abortion, the New York Times reported.

A spokeswoman for Living Essentials (the company that distributes 5-hour Energy) issued a statement saying that the product “is not an energy drink” and that the company was “unaware of any deaths proven to have been caused by the consumption of 5-hour Energy.”
