BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ A supplement company investigated by the
Food and Drug Administration has pleaded guilty to manufacturing
and distributing steroid-tainted supplements.
Tribravus Enterprises, which does business as IForce Nutrition
in California, agreed to a deal that would require it to pay a
$125,000 fine for pleading guilty to the felony charge.
The charges resulted from a search warrant executed in 2009 that
allowed FDA investigators to search the headquarters of
bodybuilding.com, a company based in Idaho that distributed the
IForce products. The affidavit filed for the search warrant listed
more than 60 products sold by the company that contained five
controlled substances or designer steroids.
