Ge Pharma, LLC of North Haven, CT is recalling Creafuse Powder Grape Lot# GE4568 and Creafuse Powder Fruit Punch Lot #GE4570, packaged in a white, 600 gram container with an expiration date of 2/2015 because it contains 1,3 dimethylamylamine (DMAA).

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), DMAA (1,3-dimethylamylamine) is an amphetamine derivative that has been widely used in sports supplements sold in the United States. Also known as methylhexanamine or geranium extract, DMAA is often touted as a “natural” stimulant, with many claimed functional uses including a body-building aid, an athletic performance enhancer, and a weight-loss aid.

The FDA has warned that DMAA is potentially dangerous to health. Ingestion of DMAA can elevate blood pressure and lead to cardiovascular problems. FDA has received 86 reports of adverse events involving products containing DMAA. These events include psychiatric disorders, heart problems, nervous system disorders, and death.

DMAA-containing dietary supplements are illegal and their marketing violates the law. Based on the scientific information reviewed by FDA, DMAA is not a dietary ingredient.

The product was distributed nationwide and was sold via telephone and email. There have been no reports of adverse events associated with these products to date.

No other products distributed by Ge Pharma LLC are subject to recall.

Consumers who may have purchased the affected lot numbers of Creafuse should immediately discontinue use of the product and contact their health care professional if they have experienced any adverse effects. Consumers can contact GE Pharma LLC at [email protected] or call 1-203-675-1057, Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST to receive further instructions for disposing, returning the product(s), refunds, credits, exchanges, or with any questions.
