    VMU global pleaded guilty to spiking their products Tren Xtreme and Mass Xtreme

    Sorry, don't have enough posts...well this is my first post...to do a link


  2. Interesting promotion by Taurus Nutrition.

    What steps is Taurus taking to guarantee to US that their products aren't contaminated? Have you guys partnered with the Banned Substance Control Group (BSCG)? Any WNBF Approval on your products? Do you partner with Chromadex to verify the ingredients on your labels are what you say they are?

    Not trying to start any drama, just curious. I figure if such a thread is going to be made, that Taurus is taking the necessary steps to ensure they don't wind up on a future list like this.

    if you follow cGMP manufacturing processes, you pretty well are guaranteed the products arent contaminated based on the series of testing you have to do to comply.

  6. Palo Alto Labs Issues a Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Aspire36 and Aspire Lite, two Products
    Marketed as Dietary Supplements

    Palo Alto Labs

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Port St. Lucie, FL -- February 28, 2008- Palo Alto Labs, 265 SW Port St. Lucie Blvd., Suite 252, Port St. Lucie, FL 34984, announced today that it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of the company's supplement products sold under the name Aspire36 and Aspire Lite. Palo Alto Labs is conducting this recall after being informed by representatives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that lab analysis by FDA of Aspire36 and Aspire Lite samples found that the products contained Aildenafil in trace amounts and Dimethyl sildenafil thione (sulfoaildenafil) a purported analog of Sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used as treatment for male Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Sulfoaildenafil is close in structure to Sildenafil and is expected to possess a similar pharmacological and adverse event profile. This may pose a threat to consumers because the analogue may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. ED is a common problem in men with these conditions, and consumers may seek these types of products to enhance sexual performance.

    Aspire36 and Aspire Lite are sold nationwide. The products are sold as a blister pack containing one liquid capsule or a bottle containing either three (3) or twelve (12) liquid capsules.

    Consumers who have Aspire36 and Aspire Lite in their possession should stop using them immediately. In the event of any adverse side effects due to the consumption of these products, consumers should contact a physician right away. Any adverse events that may be related to the use of these products should be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Program by phone at 1-800-FDA-1088 or by fax at 1-800-FDA-0178 or by mail at MedWatch, HF-2, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787.

    The Company is advising consumers to return any unused Aspire36 and Aspire Lite, for a refund of the full purchase price, to the retail location from which it was purchased or to the Company directly if it was purchased from the Company as a part of its Direct Response Program. Consumers can call 1-(877)240-3340 for instructions on the return and refund process.

    Palo Alto Labs conducts stringent quality control testing on both raw materials and finished products. Previous testing protocols did not include a test for the presence of Aildenafil or sulfoaildenafil but Palo Alto Labs assures consumers that this deficiency has been rectified. Palo Alto Labs apologizes for any inconvenience and expresses its concern for the health of consumers by conducting a voluntary recall action. Palo Alto Labs promises to ensure quality and integrity of all its products and the company is working closely with the FDA in the recall process.

  9. FDA Warns Consumers About Tainted Weight Loss Pills

    http://www.recallowl.com/Food+Recall...ght+Loss+Pills

    "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is alerting consumers nationwide not to purchase or consume more than 25 different products marketed for weight loss because they contain undeclared, active pharmaceutical ingredients that may put consumersí health at risk."

    "An FDA analysis found that the undeclared active pharmaceutical ingredients in some of these products include sibutramine (a controlled substance), rimonabant (a drug not approved for marketing in the United States), phenytoin (an anti-seizure medication), and phenolphthalein (a solution used in chemical experiments and a suspected cancer causing agent). Some of the amounts of active pharmaceutical ingredients far exceeded the FDA-recommended levels, putting consumers' health at risk."

    "The tainted weight loss products are:

    Fatloss Slimming, 2 Day Diet, 3x Slimming Power, Japan Lingzhi, 24 Hours Diet, 5x Imelda Perfect Slimming, 3 Day Diet, 7 Day Herbal Slim, 8 Factor Diet, 7 Diet Day/Night Formula, 999 Fitness Essence, Extrim Plus, GMP, Imelda Perfect Slim, Lida DaiDaihua, Miaozi Slim Capsules, Perfect Slim, Perfect Slim 5x, Phyto Shape, ProSlim Plus, Royal Slimming Formula, Slim 3 in 1, Slim Express 360, Slimtech, Somotrim, Superslim, TripleSlim, Zhen de Shou, Venom Hyperdrive 3.0"

  11. Controlled Diuretic found in StarCaps Lab weighloss product.

    In both cases, the players appealed their suspensions to an arbitrator who ruled against them. In the N.F.L. case, the players association filed a lawsuit against the league last month on behalf of five of the six players, saying that league officials knew in 2006 that the over-the-counter weight-loss supplement the players in question had been using, StarCaps, contained a banned diuretic and could cause them to test positive.

    In response, the N.F.L. said that it sent warnings to players in 2007 and 2008 about using weight-loss products, although the warnings did not specifically single out StarCaps. The league also added the distributor of StarCaps to a list of companies that players were prohibited from endorsing.

  14. There is no point listing products that are recalled for containing what is on the label. I hope x-tren contains tren and ATD contains, well, ATD.

    There's no point in making a big deal over TN's 7-KE contamination, but here we are digging up dirt on other companies to make TN's issue seem "not-as-bad"

    Im not even sure what the big deal is. They issued a formal disclaimer informing customers of the issue, and offered to issue a refund. To me that's more than enough, and if TN lives up to their offered refund, then they are in my eyes.

    What company allegedly had their "steroid spiked with a steroid" in 2005?

    What company accidentally released 17aMethyl-HydroxyTestosterone and had to do a recall?
    (IBE)
    What company had a prescription drug in their product and had to "change the formula"?

    My point is not to malign anyone just to show you that it's business, mistakes happen and Chinese suppliers often screw you.
    Maybe these are right I'm not sure. But I sure would love to win some Taurus supplements. Especially da-hcg and 5aohp.

  17. The point is this, it happens A LOT. I just wanted people to realize. Man, you guys missed a lot of these. I still need PM's from people with addresses!

    Getting screwed by the Chinese is just part of business. Now who is going to answer my other two Trivia questions. Someone already got Gaspari "Your Steroid Is Spiked With a Steroid"... Who released Methyl-OHT and had to do a recall on an ATD product because it contained the wrong ingredient?

  22. Lab test: Gaspari’s Orastan-A contains wrong steroids


    Supplements manufacturer Gaspari Nutrition – owned by the ex Olympia bodybuilder Rich Gaspari – has made a mess of its designer supplement Orastan-A, say German doping hunters in a soon-to-be-published article in Steroids. According to the biochemical analyses, Orastan-A does not contain the anabolic steroid Furazadrol. Instead, Orastan-A contains a ****tail of two weak, almost inactive steroid hormones.



    The full name of the substance that Orastan-A is supposed to contain is 17beta-hydroxy 5alpha-androstano [2,3-c] furazan 17-THP-ether. The steroid has been on the market for a number of years as a designer supplement. Spectra Force Research introduced it under the name Furagano. According to analyses done by a recognised laboratory, which have made their way to the most hated website in supplement land, Furagano contains the steroid it is supposed to contain. But this is not the case for the version that Gaspari Nutrition sells.



    The structural formula that Orastan-A should contain is illustrated here. This is an anabolic steroid that was developed in the sixties. We found the compound in a patent filed by the Japanese pharmaceuticals company Daiichi in 1967. [US Patent 3,245,988] Despite being an active anabolic it was not found on the market until it was discovered by the supplements industry.


    When the Germans analysed Orastan-A, they didn’t find the compound. Instead, they found two other steroid compounds, both ether analogues. The structural formulas are shown below. The ether groups have been left out for ease of reading.



    Steroid 1 is 17beta-hydroxy androstano [3,2-c] isoxazole. The 17alpha-methyl analogue is known as androisoxazol. It is a weak but active anabolic steroid, and it’s not on the WADA doping list. The steroid in Orastan-A does not contain the 17alfa-methyl group and is therefore not active when taken orally.


    The scientific name for steroid 2 is 17beta-hydroxy androstano [2,3-d] isoxazole. You may know the 17alpha-ethinyl analogue of this steroid, which goes by the name of danazol, a very weak androgen. The analogue in Orastan-A is unlikely to have much effect.


    It’s probably not a coincidence that Orastan-A contains a mix of these two particular steroids. They are both made from oxymetholone and they are not easy to separate from each other. We’d be willing to bet that there’s a Chinese manufacturer behind it.
    You can read more about steroids with a heterocyclic ring in the Anabolics Book. The Anabolics Book also contains more information on THP-ethers.

  23. Yeah- if I were a savvy consumer and I really cared about where my supplements are being made and what is actually in them- then I would ask that supplier/ manufacturer/ vendor for a copy of their cGMP documentation. EasyEJL is correct. If they are on the up and up then they should have this info. But I have heard (from a reliable source) of a few supposed "cutting edge" manufacturers that have sourced their raws from China, and not even from a solid source over there...
