Monster sues San Francisco lawyer over probe

The city launched an investigation into the energy drink’s safety last year

Monster Beverage Corp. is hitting back at San Francisco after the city launched an investigation into the safety of its energy drinks.

The company, which makes popular energy drinks, filed suit earlier this week claiming San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera violated its rights. According to Monster, it was unconstitutional for Herrara to demand the company reformulate its product and change its marketing and labeling materials. In its suit, the company said Herrera overstepped his bounds and that only the Food and Drug Administration can regulate the safety of its drinks.
