Company Cited For Selling Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs)
The FDA regulates based on intended use
The FDA sent a warning letter to a company distributing Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs). SARMs are synthetic chemicals designed to mimic the effects of testosterone and other anabolic steroids.
This is an excellent example that the FDA regulates based on the intended use. The company apparently was marketing this product for ingestible use but labeling as follows.
From the warning letter. “Despite statements on your product labels marketing your SARMs products for “RESEARCH ONLY” and “Not for Human Consumption,” evidence obtained from your website establishes that your products are intended to be drugs for human use.”
What is mind-blowing about this warning is that a company executive was sentenced to a year in prison last year for selling the same type of products! Here is the article by Steven Myers about this.
