FDA Issues Emergency Recall of OxyElite Pro and VERSA-1 due to Associated Hepatitis and Death

Following actions by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a Texas-based company has agreed to recall and destroy a dietary supplement linked to dozens of cases of acute liver failure and hepatitis, including one death and illnesses so severe that several patients required liver transplants.

In addition to the recall of certain OxyElite Pro products, USPLabs assured FDA officials that it will destroy warehouse stocks of the supplement, with a retail value of about $22 million. The FDA will oversee the destruction of the product.

Since September, the FDA has urged the public to avoid using products labeled as OxyElite Pro or VERSA-1. Questions? Call the experts at 1-800-222-1222.
