    I dont think the recent raid of bb.com was the result of a new amendment of the steriod bill, I think it is that since the bill in 03 the companies continued to market and distribute the prohormones that were made illegal. Hopefully the others will come back but it looks like the raid was after the chem compounds that were made illegal in 03. Notice the BOLD portion.

    FDA muscles up on Bodybuilding.com, Web site suspected of selling steroids


    By Teri Thompson and Nathaniel Vinton
    DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER

    Updated Friday, September 25th 2009, 4:00

    The federal government's crackdown on the nutritional supplement industry continued Thursday as FDA agents executed a search warrant on one of the country's most popular bodybuilding Web sites, Bodybuilding.com, which the government accuses of marketing and distributing illegal anabolic steroids.


    The government's action appears to be part of a nationwide investigation into supplement companies by federal agents including Jeff Novitzky, the FDA criminal investigator who was primarily responsible for uncovering BALCO doping ring, blowing the doors open on widespread steroid abuse in sports.

    In an application for a search warrant, unsealed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Idaho, investigators sought access to the headquarters and warehouses of Bodybuilding.com, which claims to have shipped more than six million orders. The site's parent company, Liberty Media, is a large media conglomerate with a business interest in a variety of corporations including the Direct TV, QVC, and the Atlanta Braves.

    The affidavit claims that the Web site has been illegally selling five anabolic steroids with the names "Madol," "Tren," "Superdrol," "Androstenedione," and "Turinabol," despite five "warning letters" from the FDA since 2002 informing the company that it was in violation of the law.

    "It's a significant step but it also unfortunately highlights the ineffective regulation of this industry," said Travis Tygart, president of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. "We've got to wonder how many others are out there continuing to sell these and other anabolic steroids."

    Rob Blenkinsop, the FDA special agent who signed the 86-page affidavit, was also involved with the BALCO crackdown and was listed as a government witness in last year's perjury trial against Tammy Thomas. In the document, Blenkinsop claims to have been involved with the execution of four search warrants in the last four months at firms "involved with the illegal distribution of misbranded and unapproved drugs being marketed as dietary supplements."

    In July, FDA agents – led by Novitzky – raided American Cellular Labs, a California-based supplement company, and then issued a public health advisory about tainted supplements. One of the substances that was allegedly being distributed by that company was Madol, an obscure designer steroid allegedly re-discovered by Patrick Arnold, the rogue chemist who helped develop BALCO's designer steroid THG – or, the Clear.

    Telephone calls to Bodybuilding.com were routed to executive assistant Erin Hogue and were not immediately returned. According to the Web site, the site's forums have over 1.3 million members who have made more than 33 million posts.

    The supplement industry has become notorious for selling contaminated products in the wake of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, a 1994 federal law that deregulated the industry. The government has been able to prosecute some offenders under the Steroid Control Act of 2004, which was amended in 2005 to ease the definition of a designer, or man-made steroid.

    Next week, the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs has scheduled hearings on the barriers preventing the enforcement of steroid control in the bodybuilding industry.

    Victor Conte, the founder of BALCO who served a prison sentence for his role in the doping conspiracy, said he was particularly surprised to learn that the affidavit identified the drug "turnibol," which he said was developed by the East Germans during the Cold War for their notorious state-sponsored doping regimens.

    "They called them the 'little blue pills' in the 1960s and 1970s," Conte said. "Someone has now picked it up and put it in a product in the US."

    see they were warned in 02 and ignored. And it looks like thery were only after ""Madol," "Tren," "Superdrol," "Androstenedione," and "Turinabol". So maybe companies are pulling everything off their shelves just to play it safe. But hopefully other PHs will make a comeback..

    unless I am wrong and they added to the bill to include additional products

    you are wrong, they needed no changes to the bill to make the items illegal to sell. Its just that the bill made those items class 3 controlled items. NONE OF THE PROHORMONES WERE EVER truly LEGAL TO SELL outside of potentially a couple of LG Sciences ones. They have all been sold as "dietary supplements" which to sell them as such means they have to be compliant with the DSHEA, which none besides the LG (and AMS) ones are. To be able to be DSHEA compliant you have to be able to show that the substance already exists in the food chain such as creating does in meat, or DHEA. It was just that the way the DSHEA is worded made it messier for the FDA to enforce it, and also the prior director of the FDA wanted to see the DSHEA fail and supplements become basically illegal again the way they were in the late 80s so he purposefully had portions of the DSHEA not enforced

    well i think the good news is that if they place bans on specific compounds, chemist can always hydrate a carbon hydrogen bond and change the chemical name and therefore bypass the ban...

    Haha this is true but it says in the bill that they are banning all steroids and test precursors so I'm not really sure how to comprehend that.
