In FDA REcalls on June 22, 2013 at 8:29 pm
Beta Labs, LTD (“Beta”), dietary supplement retailer, is recalling Oxyphen XR Lot #s 200910 and 200911, Phentalene Lot # 58800512, Phen FX Lot # 1205129, and Red Vipers Lot # 1205128 (hereinafter referred to as the “Products”). The recall was initiated on June 15, 2013, after a review of recent FDA communications related to 1,3 dimethylamylamine (“DMAA”). The Products contain DMAA.
The UPC codes for each of the products are: Oxyphen XR, 70541 59974; Phentalene, 70541 59982; Phen FX, 29882 55980; Red Vipers, 29882 55981. The Products are all in capsule form.
DMAA is commonly used as a stimulant, pre-workout, and weight loss ingredient in dietary supplement products. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned that DMAA is potentially dangerous to health.
See http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm347270.htm. Ingestion of DMAA can elevate blood pressure and lead to cardiovascular problems. A number of adverse effects associated with DMAA containing dietary supplements have been reported to the FDA. The FDA has also warned that DMAA is not a dietary ingredient and thus, is not Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) compliant.
This recall affects Oxyphen XR Lot #s 200910 and 200911, Phentalene Lot # 58800512, Phen FX Lot # 1205129, and Red Vipers Lot # 1205128. The products are in capsule form.
