    NOT an IFORCE rep, but their new VMS Protean is amazing. I also dropped 15lbs on the testabolan2 and rev2 stack last month.

    have not ordered any cel since day before the ban, and on that day it might have involved around 50 bottles. I am not worried about it. I have been taken down by the drug task force before for juice so I am not worried about something I leagally purchased

    richard nixon declared a 'war on drugs' in 1971. judging by how available street drugs are today, i would have to say the fda has better things to do than investigate pro-hormones. at any rate if you judge them by how well they have done at getting drugs off the streets, i would say the fda is the barney fife of law enforcement. GO BARNEY-SHOOT THAT FOOT!!!

    99% sure it is about Piractem (sp?), if you have purchased any. musclemasters = BN/1F400/lots of other places.

    Maybe you bought like 10 kilos and they want to steal it from you!

    It's probably related to the M-Drol lawsuit and any/all purchases from CEL.

    i rest much easier knowing our government is so concerned with our health and welfare-YEAH RIGHT!!!

    if you dig deep it becomes apparent that the government is working against it's people, hell you don't have to dig very deep to come to that conclusion. as a veteran, i have become very ashamed of our government.

    OP are you sure this was not a prank call from one of your friends or a radio station?

    I've gotten emails about recalled CEL products but never heard of a phone call from anyone.... unless you bought a ton of this stuff and even then I've not heard of sites or comp being asked to hand over buyers information.

    big Tom, its Friday my man... lets all take a chill pill and enjoy the sun shine

    then there's this:
    Gaspari Nutrition Inc. announced a voluntary national recall of all lots of its Novedex XT, which was marketed as a dietary supplement to “increase natural testosterone production." The product contains 3,17-keto-etiocholtriene, or ATD, an aromatase inhibitor that stops the body’s production of estrogen. FDA informed the company it does not believe 3,17-keto-etiochol-triene is a dietary ingredient, making the product adulterated. Several similar recalls of products containing ATD were announced in September 2010.
    FDA informed Gaspari Nutrition of potential adverse events associated with the use of anti-aromatases, including infertility, adrenal insufficiencies, and kidney and liver dysfunction. The agency concluded products containing aromatase inhibitors are likely to cause adverse reactions in at-risk consumers, including those with liver, kidney, adrenal or prostate concerns.

    i know they stopped making the stuff a while back... but now they're actually doing the voluntary recall...

    man goes beserk and kills 3 after drinking a protein shake, fda spokesperson on the scene say's inquiries into banning all protein supplements will begin immediately.
    supposedly the unidentified man has a history of abusing protein, often using 3 scoops instead of the recommended 1 to 2 scoops. fda says the potential for abuse is unlimited, and are fearful some may actually build up to the deadly 4 scoop dose.

    Well, ATD is a synthetic molecule isn't it? It makes sense that they don't whant it to be marketed as nutrition. Ill only get pissed when they ban natural molecules. I don't know anything about CEL though.

    MuscleMaster Conducts a Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Certain Body Building Products



    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Northborough, MA – January 15, 2010 – MuscleMaster, Inc. ("MuscleMaster") announced today that it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of all lots and expiration dates of the seventeen below listed dietary supplements sold between June 1, 2009 and November 17, 2009 (hereinafter "Recalled Products").

    FDA informed MuscleMaster that it believes that the Recalled Products contain ingredients that are steroids. Specifically, FDA advised MuscleMaster of its concern that the Recalled Products may contain the following ingredients that are currently classified, or the FDA believes should be classified, as steroids: "Superdrol," "Madol," "Tren," "Androstenedione," and/or "Turinabol." While MuscleMaster cannot independently confirm the FDA's concerns, that any one or more of the Recalled Products in fact contain these ingredients, MuscleMaster is undertaking this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution and in deference to FDA’s stated concerns.

    Acute liver injury is known to be a possible harmful effect of using steroid-containing products. In addition, steroids may cause other serious long-term adverse health consequences in men, women, and children. These include shrinkage of the testes and male infertility, masculinization of women, breast enlargement in males, short stature in children, a higher predilection to misuse other drugs and alcohol, adverse effects on blood lipid levels, and increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.

    MuscleMaster is recalling the following products:

    Advanced Muscle Science Dienedrone, 60 caps
    Advanced Muscle Science Liquidrone, 60 ml
    Anabolic Formulation M1, 4AD, 60 caps
    Anabolic Formulations 1, 4 AD, 60 caps
    Anabolic Xtreme Hyperdrol X2
    Anabolic Xtreme 3-AD, 90 caps
    BCS Labs Testra-Flex, 90 caps
    Competitive Edge Labs M-Drol, 90 Caps
    Competitive Edge Labs P-Plex, 90 caps
    Competitive Edge Labs X-Tren, 90 caps
    4Ever Fit D-Drol, 60 caps
    Gaspari Novedex XT 60 Caps
    Gaspari Halodrol Liquigels, 60 gels
    iForce 1,4 AD BOLD 200, 60 Caps
    iForce MethaDROL, 90 caps
    iForce Dymethazine, 60 caps
    Monster Caps, 60 caps

    MuscleMaster has not received any complaints of illness or injury regarding these products. FDA is concerned the products may present a safety risk to consumers who ingest them. MuscleMasteris an internet retailer and did not manufacture or formulate these products. MuscleMaster decision to implement this recall is not, and should not be construed as, an admission that their decision to sell these products was in violation of the law. In addition it is not, and should not be construed as, an admission that these products are not in compliance with the law. This recall is solely a reflection of MuscleMaster deference to the FDA’s stated concerns with these products.

    Customers who have these products in their possession should stop using them immediately and contact their physician if they have experienced any problems that may be related to using one or more of the products.

    Consumers should return any unused products purchased on the Company’s site to the Company.
