Hammer Nutrition, LTD. Sued by Endurance Athletes

From www.competitorsocal.com:

"Three athletes - Rebekah Keat from Australia, Amber Neben from the United States, and Mike Vine from Canada - have filed suit against Hammer Nutrition, Ltd. in the Orange County Superior Court, California, alleging that their positive drug tests were caused by the use of Hammer Nutrition Endurolyte supplements that were contaminated with the steroid precursor norandrostenedione."

This comes as a shock to the industry because Hammer sponsors age-groupers and elite athletes and to have just these elite athletes test positive might be a sign that perhaps they're the only ones actually getting tested and that there very well may be age-groupers with these illegal substances in their blood that they don't know about. What do you think about this?

    As a customer to Hammer products,  I hope the allegations are not true. It would be a very careless move on their part. Why risk your whole company for a few athletes?
