The United States: Asset Bee Pollen: Public Notification - Undeclared Drug Ingredient Sibutramine
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Asset Bee Pollen, a product promoted and sold for weight loss on various websites, including, and in some retail stores. FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Asset Bee Pollen contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the US market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. This product may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details:

In Hong Kong, the above product is not a registered pharmaceutical product.
