Federal officials say they've seized more than $1.3 million in dietary supplements from a Brighton warehouse of a business that markets products to bodybuilders.The Ann Arbor News reports U.S. Marshals confiscated the supplements Wednesday from LG Sciences LLC. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the products contain unapproved food additives or dietary ingredients.

The products are labeled as dietary supplements, but are marketed for use by bodybuilders. Products seized were marketed and distributed online and in retail stores under the names Methyl 1-D, Methyl 1-D XL and Formadrol Extreme XL.

Ronald Berry, a lawyer for LG Sciences, says all the company's products are legal, and the ingredients are safe for consumers.

He calls the FDA seizure "merely a preliminary step in determining compliance with food regulations."

The FDA says it's continuing to investigate LG Sciences.
