OxyElite Pro Dietary Supplements Allegedly Linked to Liver Ilnesses

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced that USPlabs LLC, of Dallas, Texas, is recalling certain OxyElite Pro dietary supplement products that the company markets. The company took this action after receiving a letter from the FDA stating that the products have been linked to liver illnesses and that there is a reasonable probability that the products are adulterated. In a review of 46 medical records submitted to the FDA by the Hawaii Department of Health, the records indicated that 27 patients, or 58 percent, had taken a dietary supplement labeled as OxyElite Pro prior to  becoming ill. Seventeen of the 27 patients (or 63 percent) reported that OxyElite Pro was the only dietary supplement they were taking. One death has occurred among these patients, another patient has required a liver transplant, and others await liver transplants. Consumers who believe they have been harmed by using a dietary supplement should contact their health care practitioner. If consumers think they have suffered a serious harmful effect or illness from a dietary supplement, you may be elligble to participate in a class action.
