USPlabs is voluntarily conducting a national recall of all lots and sizes of the OxyElite Pro dietary supplement products, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
These products contain Aegeline, a synthesized version of a natural extract from the Bael tree.
Epidemiological evidence shows that use of these products has been associated with serious adverse health consequences, namely serious liver damage or acute liver failure, concentrated in Hawaii.
Investigations are ongoing into a potential causal relationship. The company agrees with the FDA that a national recall is appropriate as a precautionary measure. Product was distributed nationwide through retail stores, mail orders and direct delivery.
The Centers For Disease Control says there have been 56 cases of liver illnesses, most of them in Hawaii. The product was already pulled off Hawaii store shelves last month.
The following OxyElite products are covered in the recall:
