Products found to contain undeclared medicines

Australia: Safety advisory: Collagen Slim capsules were found to contain undeclared prescription substance sibutramine
The Therapeutic Goods Administration had tested Collagen Slim capsules and found that they contain the undeclared prescription substance sibutramine, despite the product label claim that it is natural and contains no medicines. Sibutramine was withdrawn from Australia in October 2010 after a study showed an increased risk of major cardiac events. The levels of sibutramine found in the Collagen Slim capsules are above the previously allowable prescription levels. Consumers are advised to stop taking Collagen Slim capsules and take any remaining capsules to their local pharmacy for safe disposal, and consult their healthcare practitioner if they have any concerns arising from their use of this product.
