(CBS News) - The Food and Drug Administration is investigating reports of five deaths after people drank Monster Energy Drinks.

The reports claim people had bad reactions to the drink, which contains 240
milligrams of caffeine, seven times the amount in a can of cola.

The allegations date back to 2004.

The FDA says the reports do not prove the drink caused the deaths.
