"What is OxyElite Pro?"

OxyElite Pro is purported to be a "dietary supplement" used to lose weight and build muscle. Over the last several years, the product has been "reformulated" by the manufacturer because of safety and other concerns. Prior to the early part of 2013, OxyElite Pro contained a stimulant-like substance called DMAA (1,3-dimethylamylamine). However, in the wake of suspicions about the origins of the DMAA as well as safety concerns raised by the United States military and others, the manufacturer "reformulated" OxyElite Pro in 2013, removing DMAA and adding a substance known as Aegeline, which is supposedly extracted from the leaves of the Bael (Aegle marmelos) tree.

OxyElite Pro May Cause Serious Liver Damage

OxyElite Pro has recently been implicated in numerous cases of a serious liver disease known as "acute hepatitis." Symptoms of hepatitis include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay colored bowel movements, joint pain, yellow eyes, and jaundice. Hepatitis may lead to irreversible and life-threatening liver failure.

On November 6, 2013, the FDA notified the manufacturer of OxyElite Pro, USPLabs, of scientific and medical data indicating a potential link between the use the product and multiple cases of serious liver diseases reported in Hawaii and investigated by the Centers for Disease Control. At least one death reportedly occurred and other patients had to undergo liver transplantation or be placed on the transplant list. The FDA also identified reports of liver damage after use of OxyElite Pro in a number of other states.

The OxyElite Pro® Recall

On October 11, 2013, the FDA sent a "warning letter" to the manufacturer of OxyElite Pro in which it notified the company that the product was "adulterated" under federal law because it contained Aegeline, a new dietary ingredient "for which there is no history of use or other evidence of safety." FDA also said that it had reviewed data "indicating a link" between the OxyElite Pro products and a number of liver illnesses, reported in Hawaii and other states, and "that failure to immediately cease distribution of these products may result in enforcement action by the FDA."

On November 9, 2013, the manufacturer of OxyElite Pro "voluntarily" recalled certain lots of the product, including the following:

FDA Recommendations for Consumers

As of November 10, 2013, the FDA is advising consumers to discontinue using any dietary supplement products labeled as Oxy Elite Pro and VERSA-1 (another product that contains Aegeline). FDA further has advised consumers who believe they have been harmed by using a dietary supplement to contact their health care practitioner.
