OxyElite Pro, a diet supplement marketed for weight loss and muscle growth, has been recalled after being linked to acute liver failure and cases of hepatitis, the Food and Drud Administration said in a news release.
The FDA reports that the supplement caused one death and several patients required liver transplants.
The FDA is advising people to immediately stop using OxyElite Pro and another supplement, VERSA-1, which are both manufactured by the same company. VERSA-1 has also been linked to health problems.
If you experience problems after taking OxyElite Pro or VERSA-1, report them online or call 1-800-332-1088 and request a complaint form.
The company that makes OxyElite Pro will destroy the remaining supply of supplements under supervision from the FDA.
