The Headquarters Marine Corps Exchange buyer has notified Camp Pendleton exchanges to ban the sale of OxyElite Pro after the recent reports of the link between OxyElite Pro and acute hepatitis and liver failure in Hawaii. Camp Pendleton’s removal of the supplement from its shelves prompted other military base exchanges to take similar actions.
The Marine Corps has also advised its service men and women that the dietary supplement OxyElite Pro “might have been a factor” in the outbreak of acute hepatitis and liver failure in Hawaii.
The Air Force has taken similar action and warned its personnel of the reported link between OxyElite Pro and acute hepatitis and liver failure. In addition, the Air Force has recommended that military service men and women utilize the Department of Defense’s website for Operation Supplement Safety (www.hprc-online.org/opss) to find out more information about supplements he or she may be taking.
