Energy drink sellers PepsiCo (PEP -0.3%), Monster Beverage (MNST -0.8%), and 5-Hour Energy maker Living Essentials are in receipt of subpoenas from New York's AG asking for more information on the manner in which energy drinks are marketed and advertised. For the most part, the broadly-defined energy drink sector has stood outside the purview of the FDA, but are catching more notice from consumer groups now that retail sales are soaring (up 16% last year).
