Porterville Recorder - - HEALTH - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

CORONA — Mon­ster Bev­er­age Cor­po­ra­tion Fri­day re­ported that on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6th, a jury in a Cal­i­for­nia Su­pe­rior Court in River­side, Cal­i­for­nia unan­i­mously found that Mon­ster En­ergy drinks do not cause car­diac ar­rhyth­mias or car­diac ar­rest. The case was Bled­soe v. Mon­ster.

“This is the first case of this type to ever go to ver­dict and I am pleased the jury lis­tened to the med­i­cal and sci­en­tific ev­i­dence and fol­lowed the law,” said Marc P. Miles of Shook, Hardy & Ba­con. “Af­ter years of un­sup­ported al­le­ga­tions re­gard­ing the safety of en­ergy drinks, the jury needed only fif­teen min­utes to reach this finding.”

More than 100 bil­lion en­ergy drinks have been sold and safely con­sumed world­wide for more than 27 years. More than 25 bil­lion Mon­ster En­ergy drinks have been sold and safely con­sumed world­wide for more than 15 years.

Mon­ster En­ergy drinks con­tain ap­prox­i­mately 10 mg of caf­feine per ounce from all sources. A 16 oz. Mon­ster En­ergy drink con­tains less than half the caf­feine con­tained in a same-sized cof­fee­house cof­fee.

Mon­ster has al­ways been con­fi­dent in the safety of its prod­ucts and stands by them. This ver­dict fur­ther val­i­dates what Mon­ster has al­ways known - Mon­ster En­ergy drinks are safe.

Mon­ster was rep­re­sented by Shook, Hardy & Ba­con at­tor­neys Marc Miles, Kristy Sch­lesinger, Janet Hick­son and Gabe Spooner.
