FDA Warns Seller of Supplements Containing Unapproved Substances

On June 8, 2017 the FDA issued a warning letter to Xcel Sports Nutrition, LLC, (XLSN) following a facility inspection which found the company's products, including Xcelerator XTC Pre-Workout Blackberry Limeade, Kranked Preworkout Busted Black Cherry Limeade, and Dominatrix Pineapple Mango, to be adulterated because they were prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements.

Three of these products were found to contain ingredients not approved by the FDA. Xcelerator XTC Pre-Workout Blackberry Limeade contains the plant extract Acacia rigidula, Dominatrix Pineapple Mango contains the substance picamilon, and Kranked Prewokout Busted Black Cherry contains a synthetic, amphetamine-like compound called BMPEA (beta-methylphenylethylamine). BMPEA has not been tested in humans but has shown to raise blood pressure in animal studies and may be found in weight loss supplements.

Additionally, XLSN failed to provide product and label specifications and quality control procedures for some of its dietary supplements, including Crackhead Sour Cherry Pina Colada, Junky Juice Preworkout Maui Madness, and Incinerate-X Ice Blue Lemonade Colada.
