MLBPA Dangerous listIn an attempt to keep players from falsely testing positive for performance-enhancing substances, the MLB Players Association on Tuesday released an updated list of supplements that have been deemed to be “dangerous and/or contaminated”.

The previous version of the list distributed to players was called "Non-Exclusive List of Potentially Contaminated Nutritional Supplements," and included 21 supplements. This newly distributed list sees 104 supplements, a massive increase from the prior list.

There is no mention on the update regarding whether or not this same list of products has been found to cause positive drug tests.

Reached for comment, Victor Conte, the former head of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (BALCO) said, “Hopefully, there will be more transparency about this list in the coming days, so we can fully understand its value. This list has the potential to provide huge benefit to all parties concerned with improving the effectiveness of anti-doping.”
