AUDIENCE: Consumer, Health Professional
ISSUE: B@B Trade, Inc., Florida is voluntarily recalling all lots of Slim Fortune, Lidiy, and Slim Expert to the consumer level. The FDA laboratory analysis of these dietary supplements found to contain undeclared Sibutramine, a previously approved controlled substance that was removed from the U.S. market in October 2010 for safety reasons, making these products unapproved new drugs. These products may 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. This product may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.
BACKGROUND: These products are marketed as a natural herb for weight losl and are packaged in plastic bottles as follows: Slim Fortune green capsules/30 capsules per bottle, Lidiy green capsules,/30 capsules per bottle, and Slim Expert 30 softgels capsules per bottle.
