After a major report, Amazon is now removing all peptide listings. While peptides are natural, people are using synthetic versions for doping.
Doping Drugs on Amazon
Moreover, Markup said that Amazon’s peptides were not on the FDA’s list of approved drugs. In May, Amazon had said that they were cracking down on these doping drugs. The World Anti-Doping Agency had labeled synthetic peptides as doping drugs.
The drugs came under the label of “research” or “lab” drugs. However, people suggested that they were taking these drugs.
An Amazon rep told The Verge that they listed these drugs because they had labels of “for lab/research use” only. They would not have listed these drugs if they knew people took them. After the report, Amazon decided to remove the drugs from their site.

Amazon added that third-party sellers should follow all laws and Amazon rules. They should also give accurate information. Moreover, Amazon said it doesn’t allow product abuse.
Another Wall Street Journal report said that Amazon had listed banned or mislabeled third-party products. The US government had also declared some products to be unsafe.
