  Title Why Moss nutrition is no longer selling L-Tryptophan supplements (at least for now) - [Part II]
Journal Nutr Perspect. 2016 Jan;39(1):31-32, 34-38, 40
Peer Review No
Publication Type Article

Contaminated batches of supplemental tryptophan were involved in the vast majority of EMS cases, which ceased to appear after the FDA banned all further sales of supplemental tryptophan. Therefore, the contaminant must have been the sole causative factor.
