Kevin Goldberg appeared on CNBC today to discuss Goldberg, Finnegan & Mester's litigation against Monster Beverage Corporation. Goldberg, Finnegan & Mester represents several families of those killed or injured as a result of energy drink consumption. The firm is also involved in a consumer class action that seeks to force Monster to change its warning label and to stop marketing to children.
These lawsuits are important because some energy drink companies target their marketing at teenagers and young adults; and the warnings on the can are totally inadequate. The public, and specifically, parents of children who consume energy drinks, needs to know and understand that energy drinks can be extremely dangerous for anyone with an underlying heart condition. According to the American Academy of Pedicatrics the stimulants in energy drinks pose health risks and the drinks such as Monster, Rockstar, Red Bull and 5 Hour Energy should never be consumed by kids or teens.
