Oxyelite pro (new version) powder &pills illness
Just saw on the local news last nite that 32 confirm cases where reported of liver failure, with 2 cases having liver transplants. This for hawaii only. It was said that all where healthy individuals, before illness. They even showed the bottle and powered canister of oep. What ingredients would trigger such an illness. I have my stock of oep ready to go, don't want to end up like them. I guess have to takealong with them. Any info out there? Besides I love usp products just sad to hear that kind of stuff.

Well that was full of no useful info.
Sounds like bad news for the industry.
Can't imagine there's anything in OEP that could cause liver failure.

Thanks t-bone, I'm not that good at posting links. I am not trying to discourage anyone of using those products. I just would like to know what to take to when I am on this products. As I said before, I am a loyal supplement user of usp. I have use many of their products with great success of achieving my goals.

WAY more than a coincidence that all these cases occurred in Hawaii and in a narrow time period!? A bad patch or product tampering surely?

[QUOTE="hawaiianhulk;4187143"]Yes this has been in our news lately, but this is regarding the older formula which we do not have anymore obviously..[/QUOTE
Hey hulkster, they shown a powdered canister of the new version. If illness is from the old version then I don't need to worry about anything. Full steam ahead with my cut cycle

This sounds a little too sensationalized to believe right off the bat IMO.

If you're not from hawaii, don't worry to much about it. If you are from hawaii then I would stop. Like some members said it could be a contaminated batch that was sent to hawaii.

http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=226436051Cause of liverfailure outbreak remains open
The state hasbeen unable to pinpoint the source of the affliction in 30 suspected cases
POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Oct 04, 2013
LAST UPDATED: 01:52 a.m. HST, Oct 04, 2013
Alerted latelast month to a likely link between several cases of liver failure and the useof dietary supplements, doctors in Hawaii have since reported roughly two dozenmore suspected cases from the past six months, the state's epidemiologist said.
The onset of themost recent case came just days before a warning from the state Department ofHealth on Sept. 26, but Dr. Sarah Park said no new cases have developed sincethen. The number of suspected cases is now in the 30s.
Still, Parkcautioned this week against calling an end to the alarming outbreak of acuteliver inflammation and liver failure that might have been triggered by thedesire to lose weight and/or gain muscle.
"I thinkit's too early to say where we're going right now," she said.
Despite thespike in cases to investigate, officials are still stumped as to what preciselycaused otherwise healthy adults with no apparent risk factors to rapidly fallill while taking a dietary supplement. It is also unclear why the cases seem tobe coming only from Hawaii.
Park reiteratedthe department's reluctance to name any products that may be suspected because"it may not be as simple as that."
She added,"We can't afford to focus in and say, ‘You know, it's this product,'because for all we know there could be an ingredient that's common to multipleproducts. Maybe it was a bad lot and that lot's gone — I don't know; but wecan't be sure."
She said it alsocould be that the dietary supplement reacted poorly with other supplements alsobeing taken, such as energy drinks, protein powder or vitamins.
In earlySeptember the Star-Advertiser spoke with a liver transplant surgeon at theQueen's Medical Center who said the product OxyElite Pro in its originalformula was the suspected cause for at least five acute liver failure casesthat cropped up over the summer. The supplement is marketed as a fat-burner.
Hawaii News Nowreported Wednesday that a 48-year-old Maui mother of seven is in a medicallyinduced coma at Queen's after she took the diet product and became violentlyill.
Of the sevencases of extreme liver failure that prompted the public alert, Park said threepeople recovered on their own, two have received liver transplants, another isbeing evaluated for transplant and a woman is "expected to pass any timenow because she's not a transplant candidate."
She added,"You can't survive without your liver, and if your condition progresses, Imean, you're just fatal. To have someone in the prime of their life struck downlike this is just devastating."
The producer ofthe OxyElite Pro supplement, USPlabs, told the Star-Advertiser on Thursday thatthe company had not yet been contacted by officials regarding any dangerslinked to the product.
"We know ofno credible evidence linking OxyElite Pro to liver issues," the companysaid via email. "At this point anything to the contrary is justspeculation. The company has not yet been contacted by the Hawaii Department ofHealth regarding this issue. We stand by the safety of our product, which has astrong safety history and scientific support."
The originalformula of OxyElite Pro included the ingredient DMAA, which the U.S. Food andDrug Administration banned for use in dietary supplements in April 2012.
The FDA hadreceived 86 reports of illnesses or death associated with supplementscontaining DMAA since 2008, including heart problems and nervous system orpsychiatric disorders.
The FDA in Aprilissued a warning updating consumers that it was "using all available toolsat its disposal to ensure that dietary supplements containing a stimulantcalled dimethylamylamine (DMAA) are no longer distributed and available forsale to consumers in the marketplace."
According tothat warning on the FDA.gov website, all but one of the producers of DMAAproducts agreed to stop using the ingredient.
"The onecompany that has yet to agree to such action, USPlabs, has responded to theFDA's warning by submitting published studies that purport to challenge FDA's conclusions,"the warning says. "However, after reviewing the studies provided byUSPlabs, FDA has found the information insufficient to defend the use of DMAAas an ingredient in dietary supplements."
The reported inJune that USPlabs soon after agreed to stop making DMAA products for businessreasons, but the company continued to distribute its remaining stock, worthabout $8 million. The FDA later told the Times that USPlabs destroyed allremaining stock at a company warehouse in Dallas on July 2.
Park confirmedThursday that the Health Department has not contacted USPlabs regardingOxyElite Pro.
"We haven'tfingered a product, so why would we talk to a company?" she said."Plus, we don't regulate the products, FDA (does), so that's not up tous."
Park said thedepartment continues to work with the FDA to find a cause for the liverproblems, but efforts have slowed due to the federal government shutdown thatbegan Tuesday.
"Ourfederal partners are feeling an effect, and therefore we are feeling an effect,"she said. "I do think that this federal shutdown is impacting us."
FDA spokeswomanShelly Burgess, who previously provided the Star-Advertiser with a commentacknowledging the investigation, was not able to respond this week. Anauto-response said, "Due to the absence of either an FY2014 appropriationor Continuing Resolution for the Department of Health and Human Services, I amout of the office on furlough and cannot respond to your email."
The state healthdepartment is having trouble coming up with a cause in part because getting intouch with patients who have overcome their illness has been difficult, Parksaid. Some who were located disposed of the product or products they weretaking.
"Then it'shearsay, and without that product to do the testing … it makes it that muchharder," she said. "It's like trying to put together a puzzle and allyou have (is) maybe two pieces out of a 100-piece set."

Thirty or more cases and they one thing they have in common is they took oep?....How would that be considered "Speculation"?. I really want to continue taking my OEP powder, but I'm just a bit freaked out by this. Seriously is it safe to continue taking it?

Maybe they're all on Ice in Hawaii in addition to OxyElite. One thing Dog the Bounty Hunter taught me: everyone's on Ice.
