It’s important to know that taking certain weight loss or muscle building products can lead to workout supplement health risks—and many of these dangerous products make their way back on to the market, even after being recalled.

An article from Food Safety News explains the study examined a total of 27 of the 274 workout and dietary supplements recalled between 2009-2012. They concluded eighteen products contained ingredients considered adulterants in the United States. These ingredients include:

  • Sibutramine
  • Anabolic Steroids
  • Phenolphthalein
  • Sildenafil

Despite these products containing undeclared ingredients, an estimated 68 percent of the products remained on the shelf six months after being recalled. Officials say the reason for the lack of action is the fact the law doesn’t properly regulate the dietary and workout supplement industries.
