Maryland (www.incnow.tv) - The Food and Drug Administration is investigating reports of five deaths associated with Monster Energy Drinks.

The mother of a 14-year-old Maryland girl filed a lawsuit against Monster Beverages, stating that her daughter died of a cardiac arrhythmia because of "caffeine toxicity."

She consumed two 24-ounce cans, each containing 240-milligrams of caffeine.

Leaders within Monster say they vigorously defend their products.
