Wyked Labs Recalls Eight Dietary Supplement Products Due to Presence of Prohormone Ingredients

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding a recall of Eight dietary supplement products by Wyked Labs because they do not meet the requirements of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994.
