Camp Pendleton Bans Supplement Linked To Liver Failure (Video)

The dietary supplement OxyELITE has been banned from being sold at all Camp Pendleton base exchanges. The ban was triggered by a warning from the Centers for Disease Control that OxyELITE could cause acute hepatitis and liver failure.

Lt. Cmdr. Jennifer Wilkes, preventative medicine officer of I Marine Expeditionary Force, says the base acted immediately when the CDC issued its warning:

“The MCCS [Marine Corps Community Services] exchanges on Camp Pendleton got the instruction, Oct. 8, to pull the product.

"On Oct. 9, I verified that this product was not on the shelf of the Del Mar area exchange, the commissary, or the country store.”

According to I Marine Expeditionary Force public affairs, OxyELITE has been linked to 24 cases of acute non-viral hepatitis in Hawaii. Two of those patients suffering from hepatitis received liver transplants. One person died of liver failure.

Honolulu television station KITV-TV interviewed a man named Thad Estrada who says OxyELITE made him horribly ill. You'll find that video below:
