The use of dietary supplements and weight loss formulations is, of course, widespread. A recent FDA warning should give pause to those who are in possession of a particular dietary supplement known as Creafuse Powder.
Creafuse Powder, a dietary weight loss supplement that was distributed and sold nationwide via telephone and email, has been recalled by GePhara, LLC following an FDA warning. Creafuse contains 1, 3 dimethylamylamine (DMAA), which is frequently used as a stimulant, pre-workout, and as an ingredient in supplements to promote weight loss.
According to the FDA, DMAA is potentially dangerous in that the ingestion of DMAA may potentially raise blood pressure and lead to cardiovascular problems. The FDA warning is the result of a number of adverse effects from DMAA-containing supplements having been reported to Agency. The FDA also has specifically noted that DMAA is not a dietary ingredient, and accordingly, is not Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) compliant.
The FDA recommends effected individuals, including consumers who may have purchased the affected lot numbers – Creafuse Powder Grape Lot# GE4568 and Creafuse Powder Fruit Punch Lot #GE4570- to contact GE Pharma, LLC at at [email protected] or call 1-203-675-1057, Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST to receive further instructions for disposing, returning the product(s), refunds, credits, exchanges, or with any questions
