Lipodrene Recalls

Lipodrene Recalls

Supplement Warehouse has been a reseller of Lipodrene for over 10 years now. During these 10 years their have been a few recalls of Lipodrene. These recalls mainly had to due with different lot numbers, and not with the entire product as a whole. The only time the product has a massive change was when it was reformulated. This happened back in 2017 when DMAA was replaced with DMHA. This has been the standard formula since then.

Past Recalls

May 12, 2021 Presence of 1,4-dimethylamylamine (DMAA)

Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals. Inc. of Norcross, GA is recalling Lot # 001211197, Exp. 12/25 of Lipodrene w/25mg Ephedra Extract Dietary Supplement due to the presence of 1,4-dimethylamylamine (DMAA).

Possible Side Effects of DMAA

The FDA has warned that DMAA is dangerous because it can narrow blood vessels and arteries and cause a corresponding rise in blood pressure or other cardiovascular problems, such as: Shortness of breath, Arrhythmias, Elevated blood pressure, Tightening in the chest, and Heart attack.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the marketing of DMAA-containing products as dietary supplements is illegal as this amphetamine derivative is considered an unsafe food additive. Ingestion of DMAA may cause increased blood pressure or other cardiovascular issues such as shortness of breath, arrhythmias, tightening in the chest, and acute myocardial infarction The recall involves Lot Number 001211197 (Expiration 12/25) of Lipodrene w/25mg Ephedra Extract Dietary Supplement, which was distributed in the US and Puerto Rico through online and retail sales.

Lipodrene Recall

And that is it. Most customers expect a large list of recalls from this particular product due to it's popularity, but this is the only recall on it to date. 

Supplement Warehouse as a Retailer

When any recall is sent to retailers, the first thing we do is check the lot numbers on our products. If any of those lot numbers are in our warehouse, we immediately ship them back to the manufacturer for disposal. If any of the Lipodrene with those lot numbers is shipped to customers, customers will receive a phone call and email on how they can return the products to us, or to Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals directly. We can then either offer you a full refund (with shipping) or we can send you a bottle from a different lot not in the recall.

To date, we have not had any of the Lipodrene that were part of any recalls with the FDA.

If you have any questions about the previous Lipodrene recalls or the product in general, please call the Supplement Warehouse team at 877-606-5955.

Is Lipodrene Safe?

Of course, as long as taken as directed. While this one lot was recalled, we have sold over 1,000,000 bottles in the last 10 years. 

Is Lipodrene Banned?

Many people think this product is banned due to the recall or to the previous use of DMAA. Because Lipodrene now uses DMHA, a legal substance, it is 100% legal in the United States and not banned.
