FDA personnel have witnessed the destruction of dietary supplement products containing controversial ingredient DMAA following actions by the US Department of Justice.

In June, actions were initiated to seize and condemn DMAA-containing products from warehouses owned by GNC​.  After the seizure actions were filed, GNC voluntarily agreed to destroy all DMAA-containing products remaining at the three warehouses.

Destruction of the products in the Pennsylvania and Arizona warehouses were witnessed by FDA personnel in the Pennsylvania and Arizona warehouses, and the FDA has made arrangements to witness the destruction of these products in the South Carolina warehouse.  As a result of these efforts, the government has dismissed all three seizure actions.

 “Although DMAA is sometimes found in seemingly ordinary, over-the-counter dietary supplements, it has been linked to serious health problems,”​ said Stuart Delery, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division. “The FDA and the Department of Justice are dedicated to protecting Americans by getting products containing DMAA off the shelves.”
