A United States Court has sentenced to 41 months in prison to a 37-year-old Indian-origin man for fraudulently selling popular workout supplements by concealing their true ingredients.

As per the documents filed in the case, Patel of Irvine, California, played a key role in developing and manufacturing the popular workout and weight loss supplements known as Jack3d and OxyElite Pro, which were distributed by Dallas-based USPlabs.

United States federal court in Texas sentenced Sitesh Patel, the former vice-president of S K Laboratories.

United States federal court announced Acting US Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Prerak Shah and Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Boynton of the Department of Justice’s Civil Division.

In pleading guilty in 2019 to conspiracy to introduce misbranded food into interstate commerce, Patel and several of his co-defendants admitted that they imported substances with false and misleading labelling to avoid law enforcement and regulatory agency attention.
