A high school banned a caffeine-packed energy drink and 7-Eleven pulled it from stores after some students said it made them sick and shaky and caused their hearts to race.

Spike Shooter has a warning on the can stating the energy drink is not meant for under 18. In one can, the caffeine is 300 milligrams of caffeine per 8.4 ounces which is as much as 2 or 3 five oz cups of coffee. In the last two weeks, 6 students became ill from drinking it and 2 were hospitalized from one high school in Colorado Springs.

The school asked 7-11 stores to limit sales to students but instead of doing that, 222 stores in Colorado pulled it from the shelves.

Spokewoman for 7-11 said “Because of the concern about the reaction with the kids, and because it was not a recommended product, we told all the stores to take it off the shelves,”

This drink comes with warning labels on it before drinking. Even the website for this drink says Keep out of reach of children and `Begin use with one-half can to determine tolerance’. But the main one is should not be consumed by people taking certain other medications or if they have high blood pressure or a number of other conditions.

I went to the website and this is what i found
RECOMMENDED USE: Begin use with one-half can daily to determine tolerance. Never exceed one can daily.
