Superior Metabolic Technologies Inc Recalls Uprizing 2.0 Because the Product Contains Superdrol, Which is a Synthetic Steroid, Making it an Unapproved New Drug
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 3, 2011, Marietta, Georgia. Superior Metabolic Technologies Inc of Marietta, Georgia is voluntarily recalling all lots of the testosterone booster Uprizing 2.0 because tests have shown the product appears to contain superdrol, a synthetic steroid, making it an unapproved new drug.
On August 5 the FDA made Superior Metabolic Technologies Inc aware that Uprizing 2.0 contains superdrol which is banned by the FDA. This led to the recall of the product.
