What is Grenade Thermo Detonator?
Grenade Thermo Detonator is "a fat-loss product that combines scientifically researched ingredients designed to target body fat and preserve maximum lean muscle," according to the manufacturer's website. The product's labeling states that Grenade Thermo Detonator contains green tea (500mg), bitter orange powder (420mg), caffeine (225mg), cayenne (200mg), phenylalanine (25mg), and green coffee (10mg).
What's the Problem?
Grenade Thermo Detonator's ingredients include bitter orange extract, which contains synephrine and octopamine, substances that have been banned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Synephrine and octopamine have a chemical structure similar to that of ephedrine, a weight loss product that was banned by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2014 due to its link to life-threatening side effects.

Class Action Alleges GNC Sold Amphetamine-Laced Grenade Thermo Detonator
GNC and Grenade USA are facing a class action lawsuit (PDF) filed by a man who claims he almost died after ingesting an amphetamine-contaminated dietary supplement. The suit was filed by Plaintiff Jay Rossi, who claims he purchased a bottle of Grenade Thermo Detonator in 2017 from a GNC store in Mount Prospect, Illinois. Rossi claims he reviewed the product information on the bottle’s packaging and saw no mention of “adulterated amphetamine-like ingredients” that may not be lawful for use in dietary supplements.
In November 2017, Rossi experienced an adverse reaction after taking Grenade Thermo Detonator and was rushed to an emergency room, according to the lawsuit. Plaintiff stopped breathing while in transit to the hospital, and toxicology tests showed he tested positive for amphetamines despite affirming to hospital staff he had never knowingly ingested any amphetamines “in the days or weeks leading up to” his adverse reaction.
