This October 23, 2012 photo illustration shows a variety of Monster Energy drinks in Washington, DC. The US Food and Drug Administration is investigating five deaths and a heart attack for possible links to consumption of Monster Energy drinks, an agency spokeswoman said Tuesday. 'I can verify that FDA has received five adverse event reports of death and one of heart attack possibly associated with Monster Energy drink,' said Shelly Burgess in an email. Burgess cautioned that such reports 'serve as a signal to FDA and do not prove causation between a product or ingredient and an adverse event.' The family of an adolescent, Anais Fournier, who died of an arrhythmia in December 2011, allegedly after drinking two cans of Monster Energy over a 24 hour period, brought suit Friday in California against Monster Beverage. Her parents accused the company of not warning consumers of the potential dangers of its product. AFP PHOTO/Karen BLEIER (Photo credit should read KAREN BLEIER/AFP/Getty Images)
