Food Safety Minister

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.”

Amphetamine!
