Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Fastin-XR, Fastin Rapid Release, and Lipodrene Extended Release released a statement disagreeing with the FDA that methylphenethylamine is not a dietary ingredient based on scientific evidence demonstrating the presence of methylphenethylamine in various Acacia species. Hi-Tech Pharmaceutical’s products list Acacia rigidula (leaves) in the labeling.
The manufacturers are required to advise the FDA in writing within 15 days of the specific steps that have been or will be taken to correct these violations. If the manufacturers contend that this substance is GRAS for use in food, they will need to provide support for concluding that BMPEA is GRAS for use in dietary supplements, including data or other documentation.
