Energy drinks are popular in the U.S., and many brands have been developed or grown in response to eSports, or multiplayer video game competitions. During these types of competitions, where there are numerous players and fans attempting to stay awake and alert for long periods of time, many are eager to ingest energy drinks, like G Fuel. However, there have always been questions regarding the safety of these energy drinks. Now, the Environmental Research Center (ERC), a non-profit in California, is suing Gamma Enterprises, LLC, which does business as Gamma Labs, for there being too much lead in G Fuel.
