If you have suffered liver injury or damage, liver failure, or non-viral hepatitis from the side effects of OxyElite Pro “fat burner” dietary supplements, you may also be seeking lawsuit funding as a means of financial stability during the long litigious process.

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) website, OxyElite Pro, a dietary supplement sold as a fat-burning pill, has been recalled nationwide following reports of liver failure and other severe liver injuries, including some that required liver transplants and at least one death, among users.  As of last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it had confirmed 56 cases of severe liver injury, including liver failure and acute non-viral hepatitis, since April 1.  Twenty-two people have been hospitalized and two patients required liver transplants; there has been one known fatality.

As an investigation continues, the FDA has advised consumers to discontinue using any dietary supplement products labeled as OxyElite Pro.  Anyone experiencing possible side effects or health problems while using OxyELITE Pro should seek immediate medical attention.  Consumers who have purchased the products may return it to the store where it was purchased for a refund or contact USPlabs at 1(800) 890-3067 (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST) or
