CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning against powdered pure caffeine, and urges parents and consumers alike to avoid the product.

The FDA is concerned about the product being sold in bulk on the internet.
Powdered caffeine can be found online for under $20. 

According to the agency, 18-year-old Logan Stiner, of Ohio, died after consuming the caffeine powder.  It was ruled that Stiner passed away after overdosing on a small amount of the product.

The FDA said these products are essentially 100 percent caffeine.
