DMAA Product Recalled

On November 23, 2016, NutriVitaShop (a dba of Naturecom Inc.) issued a recall of its DMAA net weight 500g because it may contain DMAA.

DMAA is a pharmaceutical stimulant, which is banned by the FDA. It is known to narrow the blood vessels and arteries, which can elevate blood pressure and may lead to cardiovascular events ranging from shortness of breath and tightening in the chest to heart attack. It is often promoted as a stimulant, pre-workout, or weight loss ingredient, and sometimes referred to as 1,3-dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine, or geranium extract.

Recalled DMAA net weight 500g is packaged in approximately 8" x 11" silver and clear mylar ziplock bags. It was distributed within the U.S. and Puerto Rico for both wholesale and personal consumption through direct sales and via the internet. The recall includes the following lot numbers:

  • 20141102
  • 20150715
  • 20151022
  • 20160226
  • 20160701
  • 20161017
  • 20150323

Consumers who have purchased recalled DMAA net weight 500g stop using it immediately and are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full exchange.

Consumers who have purchased this supplement should discontinue use immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any adverse side effects. Consumers and healthcare providers are also encouraged to report any adverse reactions to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
