FDA Posts Injury Data Citing Red Bull

The government publicly released reports Friday of injuries that cited the possible involvement of Red Bull, the country’s top-selling energy drink, just days after its producer said it was unaware of such cases.

The Food and Drug Administration posted online 21 reports that had been filed with the agency since 2004 that mentioned Red Bull, including ones that involved hospitalizations for heart problems and vomiting. The mention of a product in a report of an injury or a death does not mean it caused it or contributed to it.
