Ingredient spurs firm to recall two sports supplements

Physique Enhancing Science, also called PES, this week launched a recall of certain lots of Enhanced, a pre-workout supplement, and Alphamine, which is sold as a fat burner.
Both products contain aegeline, an ingredient flagged by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration during its investigation of an outbreak of dozens of liver injuries linked to a weight-loss supplement made by a different company: USPlabs' OxyElite Pro. 
Return of Alphamine and Enhanced products
     From PES: 
     If customers have unused or opened containers of these products, we request that you to return them to where it was purchased. A full refund will be provided for all returned product.
     These products contain “aegeline”, an unapproved New Dietary Ingredient according to the FDA. PES has received no serious adverse events from either of these products, but out of an abundance of caution we are requesting their return.
