Tren and Mass Extreme Side Effects: Liver Failure
Consumers across the country are being urged to stop using dietary supplements amid a massive recall of Tren Xtreme and Mass Extreme. The FDA recall follows a guilty plea from the supplements’ California based manufacturer, VMG Global, also known as American Cellular Labs. The plea states that VMG Global illegally spiked their supplements with steroids. According to the FDA, use of the two supplements may lead to serious injury, including liver failure.
Tren and Mass Extreme Steroid Controversy
Although Tren and Mass Extreme were being marketed as dietary supplements, they are unapproved and misbranded drugs that contain synthetic steroid substances known to cause harm. Between 2005 and 2009, the two products generated $5.6 million in revenue for VMG Global.
VMG has agreed to pay up to $500,000 in penalties and destroy its inventory of two drugs.
Supplemental Recall of Dietary Supplements
Although the first to plead guilty, the FDA says that VMG may not be the only company selling misleading dietary supplements. In fact, over the last 12 months the FDA has been warning consumers to avoid using any body-building supplements due to concerns that some may contain harmful and unidentified steroids resulting in serious health risks.
MuscleMaster.com has announced a recall of 17 dietary supplements following an FDA investigation. A press release from the company said it could not confirm that the products contained steroids and had not received any reports of injury, but had recalled the products out of caution.
Tren and Mass Extreme Lawsuits
Consumers taking body building supplements that claim to contain steroids or steroid-like substances should stop taking them immediately and report adverse events to the FDA’s MedWatch Program at 1-800-FDA-1088.
