Energy Inhaler Left Breathless After FDA Warning

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has issued a warning letter to Breathable Foods, the makers of the new AeroShot product, for concerns about the inhaler.

AeroShot provides consumers with a breathable shot of caffeine and is intended to be ingested by swallowing. However, the FDA says the company's claims contradict each other, as the functioning of the epiglottis makes the two ingestion processes separate.

Additionally, the product appears to be mismarketed — the website says it is not intended for consumers younger than the age of 18, while the product label says it is not for people under 12. However, it is also advertised to be used while studying, which means it is being targeted toward consumers around that age bracket.

"FDA regulations require manufacturers to ensure that a product is safe and properly labeled before being brought to market. FDA has instructed Breathable Foods Inc. to correct the violations cited in the warning letter and provide information on research the company cites so the agency can evaluate the research," the administration said in a press release.

The FDA has been particularly active lately and also recently issued a warning to the manufacturer of cosmetics that may be tainted by mercury.
