FDA Issues Warning About Potentially Dangerous Vitamin Supplement

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning about a vitamin supplement which reportedly contains two possible dangerous anabolic steroids.

The FDA wants consumers to avoid a Vitamin B dietary supplement from Healthy Life Chemistry by Purity First. The agency says the company's B-50 supplements tested positive for two steroids used by some bodybuilders illegally. Neither ingredient is on the product label.

According to the FDA, Healthy Life Chemistry has declined a government request for a voluntary recall of the product.
