A report by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services that a “ previously healthy 28-year-old man suffered liver failure requiring transplant after several weeks after using the dietary supplement MassDestruction. has led to an FDA advisory that all consumers stop using product (aimed at promoting muscle growth) immediately upon further investigation into its ingredients, which include “at least one synthetic anabolic steroid.”

MassDestruction is manufactured for Blunt Force Nutrition in Sims, N.C. and is available online as well as at retail stores and fitness gyms.

“Products marketed as supplements that contain anabolic steroids pose a real danger to consumers, and may cause additional long-term consequences in women, men and children including adverse effects on blood lipid levels; increased risk of heart attack and stroke; masculinization of women; shrinkage of the testicles; breast enlargement; infertility in males; and short stature in children,” warned Howard Sklamberg, director of the Office of Compliance in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “The FDA is committed to ensuring that products marketed as dietary supplements and vitamins do not pose harm to consumers."

Consumers experiencing unexplained fatigue, abdominal or back pain, discolored urine, or any other unexplained changes in their health after using MassDestruction or other body building products should consult with their doctor immediately. In turn, healthcare professionals and consumers are encouraged to report adverse events that may be related to this or similar products to FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting: at www.fda.gov/medwatch/report.htm
