The Government has ordered an investigation into dietary supplements, after at least two products were found to contain amphetamine.

One of them, a weight loss pill called Detonate, is what Jesse Ryder was using before he was banned from cricket.

“We do have concerns and that’s why I’ve asked the Ministry for Primary Industries to report back to me,” says Food Safety Minister Nikki Kaye.

“They are working with Medsafe and the New Zealand police to ensure that further testing is undertaken. And if it is clear that banned substances are present then recalls will happen.”

    She’s quite tall, gorgeous looking… And on the Right team too… Perfect!

    Recon she would beat Jacinda in a jelly/baby oil wrestling contest too.

      I would pay a dollar to watch that. Apart from the ivory Jacinda is not too bad.

    People should stick to real food and not try quick fixes.

    i work in the natural health industry and there is a real concern that many of the new laws regarding ‘party pills’ will draw these types of products towards our industry with the latest snake oil laced with throwbacks from the now banned list.

    I’m wary of any and all “dietary supplements”, I’m pretty sure the industry hasn’t grown at 50 bazillion percent per year by actually making people healthier

    Good luck opening up that barrel of worms.
