FDA Bans Bulk Caffeine Sales

April 2018 — The FDA has banned sales of liquid caffeine, powdered caffeine, and other highly-concentrated pure caffeine products.

The FDA cited significant health risks, especially when caffeine is used in dangerously excessive doses, according to the warning:

“In fact, less than two tablespoons of some formulations of powdered, pure caffeine can be deadly to most adults, while even smaller amounts can be life threatening to children.”

Caffeine Overdose Linked to 2 Deaths

The deaths of 2 otherwise healthy people have been linked to the consumption of highly-concentrated pure caffeine, the FDA warned.

Caffeine Overdose Symptoms

Caffeine overdose symptoms can include:

  • Jitters, tremors, or restlessness
  • Trouble breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Hallucinations
  • Chest pain
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Heart palpitations
  • Muscle twitches or spasms
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Death

What is the Problem?

One teaspoon of pure caffeine powder can contain as much caffeine as 28 cups of coffee. For an average healthy adult, the “safe” dose of caffeine is about 200-mg, 1/16 of a teaspoon, or 2.5-teaspoons of liquid. Unfortunately, it is very easy to accidentally overdose on powdered caffeine in large bags, or liquid caffeine from gallons.
