FDA Investigation Prompts Dallas Supplement Maker to Destroy $8 Million Worth of Product

The Dallas-based manufacturer of two bodybuilding supplements has voluntarily destroyed its $8 million inventory of the products, the FDA announced Tuesday.

In April, the FDA announced that the stimulant dimethylamylamine (DMAA) was an illegal dietary ingredient and could pose serious health risks to users. Regulators said the stimulant could elevate blood pressure and potentially lead to heart attacks. Later that month, Dallas-based USPlabs said that it would stop producing DMAA products and instead create products without the stimulant. But the company continued to distribute its remaining inventory of Jack3d and OxyElite Pro, the FDA announced, which prompted the agency to ask the company to destroy them.

On July 2, USPlabs voluntarily destroyed its DMAA-containing products located at its Dallas facility, the FDA reported.
