The United States: Public Notification: Fruta Planta Life (Garcinia Cambogia Premium) contains hidden drug ingredient sibutramine
 
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Fruta Planta Life (Garcinia Cambogia Premium), a product promoted for weight loss. This product was identified by FDA during an examination of international mail shipments.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Fruta Planta Life (Garcinia Cambogia Premium) contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons. This product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or heart rate in some people and may present a significant risk for people 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: http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/../ucm585944.htm

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