IForce parent firm pleads guilty in steroid probe
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A supplement company investigated by the Food and Drug Administration has pleaded guilty to manufacturing and distributing steroid-tainted supplements. Tribravus Enterprises, which does business as IForce Nutrition in California, agreed to a deal that would require it to pay a $125,000 fine for pleading guilty to the felony charge. The charges resulted from a search warrant executed in 2009 that allowed FDA investigators to search the headquarters of bodybuilding.com, a company based in Idaho that distributed the IForce products. The affidavit filed for the search warrant listed more than 60 products sold by the company that contained five controlled substances or designer steroids.
