Monster advertising accused of being too child-friendly

Texas parents should be aware that Monster Beverage Corp., a company best known for its energy drinks, became the center of an investigation after they were accused of marketing their product to children. The beverage company was thrust into the spotlight in 2009 after parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit against them, claiming that their teenager consumed 480 milligrams of caffeine and died as a result. The lawsuit was eventually dropped after experts stated that that the amount she consumed would not have likely caused her death.

Widow files lawsuit against restaurant

The widow of a man who died after he ate chicken strips from a fast food restaurant in Texas on Nov. 27, 2012, has filed a civil lawsuit against the company. The wrongful death case stems from an incident when he purchased the chicken at a drive-through that evening and ate it. During the early morning hours of Nov. 28, she woke up because he was sick. He eventually was on the floor in excruciating pain. He was transported to the hospital where he was diagnosed with a bacterial infection. While there, he had a heart attack, but was resuscitated. He was released from the medical facility on Dec. 7 but returned twice for the same illness. On Dec. 12, he again collapsed in pain at home and was pronounced dead at the hospital. The cause of death was listed as a bacterial infection.
