BOISE -- The company that makes and sells a sports supplement called Craze has suspended production and sales.

New York-based Driven Sports posted a statement on its website Tuesday disclosing it had seized production of Craze months ago to investigate reports about the safety of the product.

Earlier this week, a team of American and European scientists published a paper in the journal Drug Testing and Analysis reporting how research identified a chemical cousin of methamphetamine in samples of Craze.

USA Today reported the story Wednesday, months after a newspaper's own investigation revealed that tests of the pre-workout powder by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency also found amphetamine-like compounds in Craze.

Company officials say Craze is safe when used responsibly and that their own tests show no evidence of controlled substances.
