Our OxyElite Elite Pro Lawyers are currently evaluating cases of liver damage, liver failure, and acute hepatitis linked to this controversial pre-workout dietary supplement. In October 2013, nearly 30 cases of these diseases were linked to OxyElite Pro in Hawaii, prompting the manufacturer to voluntarily cease production and distribution of the product. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to use OxyElite Pro, and to contact a doctor immediately if you begin experiencing negative symptoms.
OxyElite Pro Lawsuit Update 4/16/14: Earlier this month, a panel of federal judges denied a motion by the makers of OxyElite Pro and Jack3d to transfer and consolidate a number of products liability lawsuits to federal court in Philadelphia. The litigation contends that the supplements contained altered ingredients that were unsafe and unapproved by the FDA, leading to a nationwide hepatitis outbreak. Click here to learn more.

OxyElite Pro Recall
In October 2013, an OxyElite Pro recall was announced in Hawaii after 29 cases of acute hepatitis and liver failure were linked to the product. Of the 29 cases, 11 patients were hospitalized, two received liver transplants, and a 48-year-old mother of seven died from her injuries. The FDA said it is investigating whether counterfeit versions of OxyElite Pro, which are believed to be widely available in Hawaii and all around the country, were related to any of the cases.
“National case finding efforts have identified several individuals from states outside Hawaii with reported OxyELITE Pro or other weight loss or muscle building dietary supplement use prior to the development of acute hepatitis of unknown cause,” the CDC stated in a health advisory. “CDC, in collaboration with state health departments, is collecting additional clinical and epidemiologic information from these individuals to determine if this outbreak is national in scope.”
