USPlabs Statement in Response to AAFES Decision
DALLAS, Dec. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As a courtesy to our valued military customers, we are making the following announcement:
We are aware that AAFES and NEX have chosen to remove several products from their shelves, including two of ours, Jack3d & OxyElite Pro, in order to conduct a safety review of an ingredient, DMAA.
USPlabs is prepared to present five peer-reviewed research studies, conducted by one of the nation’s foremost academic experts on the subject, confirming the safety of our products. This depth of research places our products in the 99th percentile of supplement-related researched conducted by the industry.
We respectfully disagree with this decision. There is absolutely no reason to remove DMAA-containing supplements from sale on certain military facilities. The industry is working to ensure that product availability decisions are based on sound science, and not hearsay or erroneous media reports. We are confident that when the facts are known, the consumers’ rights to make their own educated decisions will be restored.
Furthermore, to our knowledge, there is no scientific or medical research whatsoever stating DMAA-containing products are unsafe when used as directed.
In the meantime, we will continue our charitable support of the men and women serving our country, and our products can be purchased online and off-base, through our website and others and in retail locations.
We stand by the safety and efficacy of our products.
