ISSUE: Lucy's Weight Loss System is voluntarily recalling all lots of Pink Bikini White powder Capsules, 30 white (750MG per capsule) to the consumer level. Pink Bikini has been found positive for diclofenac after FDA sampling and testing.
Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). This medicine works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation. Diclofenac can increase your risk of fatal heart attack or stroke, especially if you use it long term or take high doses, or if you have heart disease. For those that are pregnant, taking diclofenac during the last three months of pregnancy may harm the unborn baby. This undeclared ingredient makes this product an unapproved new drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established. Lucy's Weight Loss System has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall to date. Lucy’s Weight Loss System is notifying its customers by Press Release and is arranging for return.
