Products found to contain undeclared medicines

Australia: Safety advisory: 7-Days Herbal Slim-Extra capsules
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested a product labelled 7-Days Herbal Slim-Extra capsules and found that the capsules contain the undeclared substance sibutramine. Consumers are advised that sibutramine is a prescription-only medicine (which was the active ingredient in Reductil). It was withdrawn in October 2010 after a study showed an increased risk of major cardiac events. Consumers should stop taking the product and consult their health care practitioner if they have any concerns arising from the use of the product.

Please refer to the following website in TGA for details:
