The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has seized over 23,300 bottles of dietary supplement products, worth about $1.3 million, owing to a safety risk.

The federal agency stated that the all supplements would be destructed as they have unapproved food preservatives and-or new dietary components for which there is insufficient data to guarantee they do not present a significant or unreasonable threat of infection or injury.

The products, distributed by LG Sciences LLC of Brighton, Mich. — were commercialized for making use of by musclebuilders, and sold online and in retail stores under different names “Methyl 1-D,” “Methyl 1-D XL” and “Formadrol Extreme XL.”

“The FDA has no scientific information concerning the safety of the condemned products or their ingredients and, thus, cannot determine whether they represent a hazard to consumers,” the agency said. “Under the circumstances, consumers who use or have used the products should discuss their use with their health care professionals.”
