Monster Beverage(MNST) had a lawsuit filed against it Tuesday for the death of a teen boy.
Nineteen-year-old Alex Morris drank Monster regularly, consuming two cans daily (including the day he died) for three years.
Monster recommends limiting the amount of the drink consumed to 48 ounces a day.
Alex Morris isn’t the first death to be related to Monster. Excluding Morris, there have been five other deaths that have been related to the drink.
One of these deaths was 14-year-old Anais Fournier, whose family sued the energy drink company last year for her death, reports the Associated Press.
“Our allegations in the lawsuits are the same and that’s the peoples deaths were caused by these energy drinks and more specifically the defendants failure to warn about the dangers,” Alexander Wheeler, an attorney representing the plaintiffs in both cases, told the Associated Press.
Monster representatives argued that there was no connection between the deaths and its drink.
