The UK medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency has warned about serious liver and heart problems associated with the sport dietary supplement OxyElite Pro.

In 2012 the agency warned against using an earlier formulation of the product.

Now it says the new formulation contains aegeline, a substance linked to 56 cases of acute hepatitis in the US.
