MuscleMaster.com, Inc. (“MuscleMaster.com”) just announced that it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of all lots and expiration dates of 17 <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/defective_drugs">dietary supplements sold between June 1, 2009 and November 17, 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced.
FDA informed MuscleMaster.com that it believes that the recalled supplements contain ingredients that are steroids. Specifically, the agency advised MuscleMaster.com of its concern that the recalled products may contain ingredients currently classified, or the FDA believes should be classified, as steroids: “Superdrol,” “Madol,” “Tren,” “Androstenedione,” and/or “Turinabol.” MuscleMaster.com cannot independently confirm the FDA’s concerns, that any one or more of the Recalled Products, in fact, contain these ingredients.
The FDA notes that acute liver injury is known to be a possible harmful effect of using steroid-containing products. Steroids may also cause other serious long-term adverse health consequences in men, women, and children, such as shrinkage of the testes and male infertility; masculinization of women; breast enlargement in males; short stature in children; a higher predilection to misuse other drugs and alcohol; adverse effects on blood lipid levels; and increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.
