Dietary Supplements Distributed by Universal ABC Beauty Supply International, Inc.
Audience: Consumers, pharmacists
[Posted 04/22/2009] ABC Beauty Supply and FDA notified consumers and healthcare professionals of a recall of 34 dietary supplement products. FDA lab analyses identified undeclared sibutramine, an FDA-approved drug, used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. FDA advises that these products pose a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke. See the firm's press release for a list of affected products.
