UFC Yoel Romero Sues Supplement Maker | Forbes

Paul Gift writes about UFC middleweight contender Yoel Romero suing Goldstar Performance Products for negligently failing to mention some of the ingredients in their supplement

In Forbes, Associate Professor of Economics Paul Gift, PhD, covers UFC fighter Yoel Romero's lawsuit against Goldstar Performance Products in New Jersey Superior Court. The suit stems from Romero's positive drug test for a substance called Ibutamoren back in 2015.
 
Dr. Gift explains Ibutamoren's classification by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and how Romero claims ignorance of its presence in a supplement called Shred Rx, which he took for training purposes. According to the complaint, Romero gave USADA a pill from the bottle of Shred Rx he had been using at the time of his drug test, and alleges that Goldstar "failed to maintain the production facility" and "knew" Shred Rx was contaminated with Ibutamoren.
