  • Have OxyElite Pro and VERSA-1 Been Recalled?

    The FDA began investigating OxyElite Pro and VERSA-1 in October 2013, after 29 people in Hawaii developed liver failure or non-viral hepatitis. Twenty-four of those patients used OxyElite Pro in the 60 days prior to the onset of their illness, including a 48-year-old woman who died of liver failure. The FDA "warning letter" sent to USPlabs on October 11, 2013 notified the company that the products were "adulterated" under federal law because they contain Aegeline, a substance that has "no history of use or other evidence of safety." The FDA said its investigation indicated a link between OxyElite Pro products and liver illnesses in Hawaii and other states. In November of 2013, USPlabs "voluntarily" ceased the production of current versions of OxyElite Pro and recalled the following products:
