FDA sends warning letter to makers of not!steroids, warns consumers

New, 1 comment

ANR-625 Xtreme

The FDA seems to have finally figured out that they might want to look into the plethora of "works like steroids but not steroids but maybe actually steroids" products that come in containers covered in pictures of fire. They sent a warning letter to American Cellular Labs telling them that they're selling "misbranded and unapproved new drugs" (including one branded as MMA-3 Xtreme) while advising consumers to avoid these products.
