The states of Oregon, Washington, and Vermont have all filed a lawsuit against, who else, but the makers of 5-Hour Energy.
The suit was filed by each state, saying the the makers of the caffeinated energy drink put out deceiving advertisements to its customers, according to Reuters.
“Plainly and simply, in Oregon you cannot promote a product as being effective if you don’t have sufficient evidence to back up your advertising claims,” said Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum.
Oregon claims that 5-Hour Energy claims to have a mixture of ingredients that gives those who drink it an extra boost of energy. However, the only ingredient in 5-Hour Energy that does that is a concentrated dose of caffeine.
Investigations on energy drinks, like 5-Hour, began in 2012, and many states are beginning to take a closer look at the popular beverages.
