In a very weird recall, NiutriVitaShop, doing business as NatureCom Inc. is recalling its DMAA because it may contain DMAA. DMAA is ,3-dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine, also called geranium extract.
DMAA is used as a stimulant, pre-workout, and weight loss ingredient in dietary supplement products. The FDA warns that DMAA is “potentially dangerous to health as it can narrow blood vessels and arteries, which can cause a rise in blood pressure or other cardiovascular problems such as shortness of breath, arrhythmias, tightening in the chest, and heart attack.”
It was purchased through a direct sales force in the U.S. and Puerto Rice and through online sales. The product is net weight 500 grams, in a 8″ x 11″ silver and clear mylar ziplock bags. The lot numbers are 20141102, 20150715, 20151022, 20160226, 20160701, 20161017 and 20150323. No adverse reactions have been reported to date.
