Further to an advisory issued 5 Apr 2019, Health Canada is advising consumers that testing has found that two unauthorized products, Slim 30 Ultra and Sugar Balancer, contain pharmaceutical ingredients that are not listed on their product label and may pose serious health risks. Slim 30 Ultra contains N,N-Didesmethylsibutramine, a chemical similar to sibutramine, a prescription drug that is not authorized for sale in Canada. Sugar Balancer contains the prescription drug repaglinide.

The products were seized from Sunrise Lee Chinese Herbs Centre (999 36th Street NE) in Calgary, Alberta, and are in addition to the products that Health Canada warned about in a previous advisory.
