Workout Supplement Containing Acacia Rigidula Recalled

On March 18, 2016, Nubreed Nutrition, Inc. issued a recall of all lots of its "pre-workout" supplement Undisputed which is labeled as containing Acacia rigidula, an ingredient which is not permitted in dietary supplements. 

In the past, some products labeled as containing this ingredient (commonly weight loss and workout supplements) have been found to contain a synthetic, amphetamine-like compound called BMPEA (beta- methylphenylethylamine). Animal studies suggest BMPEA could raise blood pressure and have effects similar to other amphetamine-like substances, although its safety in humans has not been studied. It was first reported by the FDA in 2013 to be present in supplements for weight loss, energy and mood.

Undisputed was packaged in white bottles with a white cap, containing 40 powder servings, and sold to distributers, wholesalers, retail stores and direct to consumers until it was discontinued by Nubreed Nutrition in October 2015.
