In the wake of a recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warning, Superior Metabolic Technologies Inc. was forced to initiate a nationwide recall of their popular testosterone booster. Uprizing 2.0 was marketed as a nutritional supplement intended to assist in generating muscle mass and strength. However, tests conducted by the FDA revealed traces of a synthetic steroid, making the supplement an unapproved drug. Subsequently, Uprizing 2.0 has been recalled for containing an undisclosed ingredient that may be responsible for severe, life-threatening side effects such as acute liver injury.

Uprizing 2.0 Recall Lawsuit Overview
As a product of Superior Metabolic Technologies Inc., Uprizing 2.0 was introduced to the U.S. market as a nutritional supplement. The steroid was designed to create an anabolic environment in which the body is able to gain size and strength. However, tests conducted by officials at the FDA acknowledged that Uprizing 2.0 contains an undisclosed ingredient. On August 5, 2011, the regulatory officials made Superior Metabolic Technologies Inc. aware that Uprizing 2.0 contains superdrol, an ingredient currently banned by the FDA.
As a synthetic anabolic steroid already banned by the FDA, superdrol has been associated with a number of catastrophic side effects. The most serious of which include severe, long-term adverse health consequences. Due to the severity of side effects associated with superdrol, Superior Metabolic Technologies Inc. was forced to conduct an Uprizing 2.0 recall on October 3, 2011.
The Uprizing 2.0 recall includes all lots of the supplement. The product comes in a black plastic bottle with a black, red, and silver label and contains 90 capsules. The SMT logo is located on the top of the bottle. The supplement was distributed through retail health food stores in Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, Mississippi, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Texas.
