What’s the Problem?
A recent class action lawsuit was filed against GNC in the Northern District of Illinois by a man who claims he almost died after taking an amphetamine-contaminated dose of Grenade Thermo Detonator. Plaintiff Jay Rossi claims he purchased a bottle of the supplement in 2017 from a GNC store in Mount Prospect, Illinois. After taking the product as directed, Rossi experienced an adverse reaction and was rushed to an emergency room, the complaint states. Rossi stopped breathing on the way to the hospital, and toxicology tests found the presence of amphetamines in his system, despite “never knowingly ingesting any amphetamines in the days or weeks leading up to” his adverse reaction, according to the lawsuit.

What’s the Problem with Bitter Orange?
Grenade Thermo Detonator’s ingredients include bitter orange extract, which is used in many products to treat obesity, increase athletic performance, as well as to aid with indigestion and many other conditions; however, there is no good scientific evidence to support its use, according to WebMD. Additionally, bitter orange contains synephrine and octopamine, substances linked to an increased risk for high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack, stroke, and other severe side effects.
