Driven Sports state that the studies they have conducted show Craze supplement ingredients to be safe "when used responsibly". According to the manufacturer, tests "have consistently indicated that Craze does not contain amphetamines or controlled substances." 


However, Driven Sports has stopped production on the Craze Supplement ingredients, saying that: "the confidence of our retailers to sell the product and our consumers to buy the product is our primary concern so we will continue the suspension of the production and sale of Craze for the foreseeable future until these issues are resolved."

According to the Craze supplement ingredients label, the supplement dendrobium orchid extract. Driven Sports says that the extract contains naturally occurring phenylethylamine compounds. Their statement says that the independent testing may have mistaken the substance for a methamphetamine analogue.  

Lab tests conducted by Driven Sports show the presence of "n-beta DEPEA" in Craze supplement ingredients.  Driven Sports states that this compound is "a related but very different substance" from the n,alpha DEPEA identified in the article published in Drug Testing and Analysis, saying it is "very difficult to distinguish these two substances unless you know precisely what you are looking for and are using the proper test methodology."

Nevertheless, the research team that worked on the Drug Testing and Analysis article says that they "stand 100% behind our results."  They say that Driven Sports' argument "has no merit" and that they are "just throwing out new chemical names to try to confuse."

Wal Mart and other retailers took the Craze supplement off of their shelves earlier this summer, but it was still available through some online outlets until recently.

NSF International, another testing organization, announced that in separate testing they found the same meth-like compound in the weight-loss supplement Detonate.  While Detonate has been removed from the list of products marketed by Gaspari Nutrition, it may still be available in some stores.
