Product Description
The 65 products listed above are promoted as dietary supplements used for bodybuilding.  
Reason for Warning

The FDA informed consumers of a voluntary recall of the 65 bodybuilding products listed above as these products may contain the following anabolic steroids: "Superdrol," "Madol," "Tren," "Androstenedione," and/or "Turinabol."

Anabolic steroids are synthetic substances similar to the male sex hormone testosterone. They are used for the treatment of medical conditions such as hormonal problems and cancer. In Canada, anabolic steroids are controlled substances and are therefore only legally available by prescription.  They should only be taken under the supervision of a health care practitioner.

The company, Bodybuilding.com is conducting a voluntary nationwide and international recall of these products.

According to the company-issued news release, customers who have any of the recalled products in their possession should stop using them immediately and contact their physician if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking one or more of the products. Consumers should return any unused products purchased on www.Bodybuilding.com to the company. For instructions on how to return recalled products, contact Bodybuilding.com at 1-866-236-8417 or at service@bodybuilding.com

Health Canada has communicated on the risks associated with some of these products in the past.  Health Canada issued a Warning on Ergopharm 6-OXO after receiving a report in Canada of a patient who developed seizures and blood clots in his brain after using the product, and a Foreign Product Alert for Nutra Coastal S-Drol after the FDA informed consumers of a voluntary manufacturer recall because one lot was found to contain an undeclared anabolic steroid.  
Possible Side-Effects
Side-effects associated with anabolic steroids include heart attacks, strokes, liver damage, anxiety, irritability, aggression, and depression. Side-effects also include acne, voice deepening and growth of body hair in women, breast growth and shrinking of testicles in men and short stature in children.
