FDA Warns Seller of DHEA, Creatine, Chromium & More for Manufacturing Violations, Drug Claims

On August 25, 2017, the FDA issued a warning letter to Mega-Pro Nutrition, Inc., following inspections of the facility and website www.mega-pro.com which found a number of the company's products, including Chromium Picolinate, DHEA, Creatine monohydrate supplements, Mega Cut Fat Burner, Stim & Trim Fat Inferno, and Inosine, to be adulterated because they were prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements. 

In addition, statements made about some of these products were found to be drug claims. For example, Chromium Picolinate was claimed to "...play a role in loweering cholesterol, normalizing high blood sugar." 

(See ConsumerLab.com's Product Review on Chromium Supplements.)

The website also claims "DHEA depletion" is "linked...with almost every major degenerative disease." 

(See ConsumerLab.com's Product Review on DHEA Supplements.)

Additionally, an article on the website advertises creatine monohydrate (Cn) supplements for bone ailments like "osteoporosis... plus for those suffering from this bone disease...elderly...osteoporosis, osteoarthritis..." and neurodegenerative diseases like "Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis... Energy depletion, mitochondrial dysfunction...are key factors involved in these types of disorders... Cn can positively affect each of these symptoms."
