Seller of Muscle Supplements Containing Synthetic Steroids Warned

On February 9, 2015, the FDA issued a warning letter to A2Z Industries, LLC, following a facility inspection which found the company's muscle enhancing supplements, including HaloV and EPI2A3A to be labeled as containing synthetic steroids. Statements about these supplements were also found to be drug claims.

HaloV was promoted with statements such as "Rapid Muscle Growth" and "Muscle Hardening" and was labeled as containing the synthetic steroid 4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3, 17b-diol.

EPI2A3A was promoted with statements such as "Rapid Muscle Growth" and "Muscle Hardening" and was labeled as containing the synthetic steroid 2a, 3a-epithio- 17a-methyletioallocholanol.

In addition, other A2Z Industries supplements, including Blockade, Blockade on Cycle Defense, and Post Cycle 3X were found to be misbranded because their labels did not provide information required by federal regulations.
