NutraCap Labs Warned for Unsafe Ingredients and Manufacturing Violations

On May 21, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to NutraCap Labs LLC, which found the company's products to be adulterated because they were prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements. These violations include failure to have quality control personnel approve or reject changes to the identity, purity, strength, or composition of a dietary supplement, as required by federal regulations.

In addition, the FDA stated that some of the company's products are adulterated because they contain 2-amino-5-methylheptane (DMHA), an unsafe food additive. DMHA is also known as 1,5-Dimethylhexylamine, 1,5-DMHA, or by names such as Amidrine, Octodrine or Vaporpac. It is a stimulant drug that is not permitted in dietary supplements but has been found in some found in workout and weight loss supplements.

NutraCap Labs is a contract manufacturer that makes products such as whey protein, weight loss supplements, and joint health supplements for private brands. The FDA's warning did not name specific products that were found to be adulterated or to contain DMHA.
