The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is advising consumers to immediately stop using a product called Mass Destruction, which is marketed as a dietary supplement for muscle growth.
The report described a previously healthy 28-year-old male with liver failure requiring transplant after several weeks of product use.
Liver injury is generally known to be a possible outcome of using products that contain anabolic steroids and steroid-like substances.
The product’s ingredients are undergoing further analysis by the FDA and an investigation is underway to identify the product’s manufacturer.
Mass Destruction is manufactured for US company, Blunt Force Nutrition and is widely available on the internet.
Anyone suspecting they are experiencing problems associated with Mass Destruction or other body building products should consult their doctor, especially if they have experienced unexplained fatigue, abdominal or back pain, discolored urine, or any other unexplained changes in their health.
