NFL players are being warned that eating meat produced in China and Mexico could potentially contain elements of clenbuterol, a banned substance under the league’s performance-enhancing substance policy.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith shared the warning from the league Tuesday via Twitter, which cautioned players about the “contaminated meat” in China and Mexico. It reminded players that they are responsible for what they put in their bodies. “Consuming large quantities of meat while visiting those particular countries may result in a positive test,” the memo read.
