DMAA (also known as methyl hexaneamine (MHA) and several other names) has been a subject of controversy for several years of controversy. In April the FDA issued a Consumer Update, which stated the agency’s position that the “information [is] insufficient to defend the use of DMAA as an ingredient in dietary supplements”.
FDA has issued over a dozen warning letters to manufacturers and distributors of supplements containing DMAA, stating that DMAA was not a lawful dietary ingredient because it lacked a New Dietary Ingredient notification, and raised the issue of whether it is a so-called synthetic botanical.
The GE Pharma recall relates to products distributed nationwide and was sold via telephone and email. They are packaged in a white, 600 gram container with an expiration date of 2/2015. The lot numbers are GE4568 (Grape) and GE4570 (Fruit Punch), said the FDA.
