Beta Labs, a dietary supplements distributor and retailer, has recalled four sports supplement products that contain DMAA. The company said it initiated the recall after “a review of recent FDA communications related to 1,3 dimethylamylamine (DMAA).”

FDA recently declared that DMAA is not a lawful dietary ingredient.  And in earlier warning letters to manufacturers of products containThe agency cited language from the recent draft guidance on New Dietary Ingrdients, saying that DMAA is an example of a synthetic version of a botanical constitutent, and therefore does not qualify as a dietary ingredient.
