FDA issues warning about powdered caffeine

The FDA is warning people about consuming pure caffeine after an Ohio teen died from it.

The FDA warning tells consumers to avoid pure, powdered caffeine marketed as a dietary supplement on the internet.

One teaspoon is the equivalent of 25 cups of coffee.

Experts say the products are appealing to teens, but many don't know you can overdose on caffeine.

Symptoms include rapid heart beat, seizures, vomiting, and disorientation.
