The makers of AeroShot could face Food and Drug Administration regulatory action over "false and misleading" labeling.
AeroShot is marketed as breathable energy. It comes in a lipstick-shaped dispenser and contains b-vitamins and caffeine.
However, the FDA said the words "breathable" and "inhaler" suggest consumers actually inhale the product into the lungs, which is not a normal way in ingest caffeine. On its website, the company said the product is meant to be swallowed.
The AeroShot website indicates the product is not recommended for those under 18 years old, yet the FDA said the company appears to target young adults by suggesting AeroShot can be used while studying.
AeroShot said it will work with the FDA to follow the rules.
