Uprizing 2.0: Recall - Undeclared Drug Ingredient: Synthetic Steroid

:Original raster version: :Image:Food and Drug...Image via WikipediaFrom the FDA site:

ISSUE: FDA notified the manufacturer that lab analyses found that the product, sold as a testosterone booster, contains superdrol, a synthetic steroid, making it an unapproved new drug. Acute liver injury is known to be a possible harmful effect of using products containing synthetic anabolic steroids. In addition, use of synthetic anabolic steroids may cause other serious long-term adverse health consequences in men, women, and children. These include 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.

BACKGROUND: On August 5, FDA made Superior Metabolic Technologies Inc aware that Uprizing 2.0 contains superdrol, which is banned by the FDA. Uprizing 2.0 was distributed through retail health food stores in Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, Mississippi, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Texas.
