The recalled products were distributed nationwide to various nutritional supplement retail outlets and via the internet.

Winter Park, FL – infoZine – Wyked Labs of Winter Park, Florida is voluntarily conducting a nationwide recall of all lot codes of the following products (collectively, the “Recalled Products”) to the user/consumer level.
This recall is being conducted due to the presence of ingredients that the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has stated do not meet the requirements of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994. Specifically, the Recalled Products are prohormone products or are otherwise adulterated. FDA has opined that prohormones are synthetic steroids that bear a similarity to anabolic steroids. It is FDA’s position that the ingredients in the products are not properly dietary ingredients that may be present in dietary supplements. Wyked Labs’ decision to implement this recall should not be construed as an admission that its sale of these products was in violation of the law. Wyked Labs is undertaking this voluntary recall solely out of an abundance of caution and in deference to FDA’s stated concerns.
Use or consumption of products containing methylated anabolic steroids may cause acute liver injury, which is known to be a possible harmful effect of using steroid­containing products. In addition, abuse of anabolic 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. To date, Wyked Labs has not received reports of these or any other adverse effects related to this recall.
