U.S. Food and Drug Administration Announces Recalls for 65 Bodybuilding.com Products

WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 (UPI) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of 65 products sold online by Bodybuilding.com that might contain steroids.

The FDA said the voluntary nationwide and international recalls were initiated by Bodybuilding.com LLC of Boise, Idaho, of all lots and expiration dates of the dietary supplements that might contain ingredients that are or should be classified as steroids, such as “Superdrol,” “Madol,” “Tren,” “Androstenedione,” and “Turinabol.”

The FDA said the use of steroid-containing products can result in acute liver injury, among other adverse health consequences that include male infertility and increased risk of heart attack, stroke and death.

Bodybuilding.com officials said they agreed to the recall despite receiving assurances from all of the manufacturers that the recalled products were properly classified as dietary supplements in compliance with federal law, and did not contain any unlawful ingredient.

Consumers with questions can contact the company at 866-236-8417.
