Panera Bread to stop serving ‘loaded lemonade’ after deaths | WFLA Orlando News Radio

Panera Bread will soon stop selling its Loaded Lemonade after the drink was blamed for at least two deaths.

A lawsuit claims the highly caffeinated drink led to the death of a University of Pennsylvania student suffering from heart disease.

Another lawsuit claims a Florida man with previous health problems died after drinking a loaded lemonade.

The problem was how Panera marketed Charged Lemonade, which contains 390 milligrams of caffeine, or nearly the amount of caffeine in three Red Bulls.

But previous language on Panera’s website and stickers on in-store containers compared it to “the same caffeine as a cup of their dark roast coffee.”
