USPLabs, manufacturer of Jack3d and OxyElite Pro, both of which contained DMAA, has said it will no longer use the controversial ingredient.

As reported by NutraIngredients-USA​, the FDA released a Consumer Update warning consumers stating: “… after reviewing the studies provided by USPLabs, FDA has found the information insufficient to defend the use of DMAA as an ingredient in dietary supplements.”

Daniel Fabricant, PhD, director of FDA's Division of Dietary Supplement Program, told us: “We want to be clear about where we are: We don’t want people using DMAA.”

The company has now said it will no longer use the ingredient in its formulations, despite maintaining its belief that the ingredient is safe.

Peter Hutt of Covington & Burling in Washington, a lawyer representing USPLabs, told the New York Times​: “USPlabs continues to believe that DMAA is legal, or otherwise they would not be selling it.”
