September 16, 2013 — Creafuse Powder, a popular pre-workout bodybuilding supplement, is being recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Ge Pharma, LLC. It contains DMAA (1,3-dimethylamylamine), an illegal stimulant drug that has been linked to life-threatening cardiovascular side effects.
Creafuse Powder recall products include:
- Creafuse Powder Grape Lot# GE4568
- Creafuse Powder Fruit Punch Lot #GE4570
The FDA warns:
“The FDA has warned that DMAA is potentially dangerous to health. Ingestion of DMAA can elevate blood pressure and lead to cardiovascular problems. A number of adverse effects associated with DMAA containing dietary supplements have been reported to the FDA.”
Ge Pharma sold the supplements via email and telephone throughout the United States. The product comes in a white, 600-gram cylindrical container with an expiration date of February 2015.
The FDA recommend that customers should stop using the product, report any adverse events, and contact Ge Pharma for information about returning the products for a refund.
Creafuse Powder and DMAA
The FDA has been cracking down on dietary supplements containing DMAA for over a year. Enforcement actions began in April 2012, when they sent warning letters to 10 manufacturers. Over the next year, most of the manufacturers stopped selling DMAA or re-formulated their product with other ingredients. However, the largest manufacturer, USPLabs, continued selling Jack3D and OxyElite Pro. In July 2013, the FDA forced USPLabs to destroy over $8 million worth of the products.
