The Hawaiian Department of Health has reported that the number of liver failure cases in the state of Hawaii since September has skyrocketed to 32. The reports are being investigated by the FDA. Inside sources report that the liver failure cases are tied to a product called OxyElite Pro.
Given the local nature of the outbreak there are concerns that the source of the liver failures may be contamination of lots sold in Hawaii. The Hawaiian Department of Health has called in the CDC and FDA to investigate the source of these liver failures.

The Army is investigating several dietary supplements – including Jack3d and OxyELITE Pro – after two U.S. soldiers died from heart attacks during fitness exercises. The Defense Department removed these and all the products listed above containing the same active ingredient – DMAA – from all military bases. The Australian regulatory agency: Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has also prohibited the substance. It is unclear at this point what action the FDA will take.
The active ingredient DMAA (dimethylamylamine) is promoted to increase workout energy and efficiency. Manufacturers claim DMAA is found naturally in Asian geraniums despite evidence to the contrary. In fact, DMAA is a dangerous, synthetic additive. Medical literature from the 1950s discovered the toxicity of DMAA.
DMAA has been banned by numerous sports organizations, including the international body that regulates Olympic athletes and several professional sports.
