The NFL sent out a strange e-mail warning on Tuesday to its players warning them to be careful about contaminated meat in Mexico and China. At first it was unclear why such a statement was released.
But ... here it is. A Texans player actually failed a drug test after eating the tainted meat:

Clenbuterol can be be used to control asthma or as a weight-loss supplement. It is also banned by the NFL. If you're an NFL player in Mexico, be careful with what you eat.
