The Food and Drug Administration plans to investigate whether inhale-able caffeine product Aeroshot is safe for consumption.
Aeroshot went on the market in Massachusetts and New York last month.
The product is used when consumers put one end of the canister into their mouths and inhale a fine powder.
Each shot contains the caffeine equivalent of a large cup of coffee, along with B vitamins.
The product did not require FDA approval since it’s sold as a dietary supplement.
But New York Senator Charles Schumer is concerned young people may use the product with alcohol.
Aeroshot inventor, Harvard Biomedical Engineering Professor David Edwards says the product is safe. He added it doesn’t contain taurine or other common additives used to enhance the caffeine effect found in energy drinks.
