There is a lab, Farnks lab or something similar who has addmitted to mixing the ingredients in the wrong amounts in the supplement. I will see if I can find the link to that article.

Franck's Pharmacy Chief Operations Officer Jennifer Beckett released the following statement April 23:

"On an order from a veterinarian, Franck's Pharmacy prepared medication that was used to treat the 21 horses on the Lechuza Polo team. As soon as we learned of the tragic incident, we conducted an internal investigation that was led by an outside lawyer and, upon its conclusion, we immediately alerted the state Department of Health and Board of Pharmacy. The report, which we are furnishing to these agencies, concluded that the strength of an ingredient in the medication was incorrect. We will cooperate fully with the authorities as they continue their investigations.

"Franck's Pharmacy has been providing patients, physicians and veterinarians with custom medications for more than 25 years. We are in the healthcare profession and are committed to improving the health of our patients.

"We extend our most sincere condolences to the horses' owners, the Lechuza Polo team and the members of the United States Polo Association. We share their grief and sadness.

"Because of the ongoing investigations, we cannot discuss further details about this matter at this time."
