Australia: Safety advisory: BFB Be Fast Block capsules contain the undeclared substance clenbuterol
 
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested a product labelled BFB Be Fast Block capsules and found that the capsules contain the undeclared substance clenbuterol. Consumers are advised that clenbuterol is a prescription-only substance in Australia. It is not marketed in Australia, but is included on the World Anti-Doping Authority's list of banned substances. It has some popularity as a drug used by bodybuilders and for weight loss. TGA investigations have shown that a number of people in Australia may have bought the product online.

Consumers are advised to stop taking the product and take any remaining capsules to their local pharmacy for safe disposal. If they have any concerns arising from their use of this product, consult their health care practitioner.

Please refer to the following website in TGA for details: http://www.tga.gov.au/alert/bfb-be-fast-block-capsules
