Products found to contain undeclared medicines
|The United States: Bee Extremely Amazed LLC issues voluntary nationwide recall of various products distributed for weight loss due to undeclared drug ingredients including sibutramine and/or phenolphthalein
|Bee Extremely Amazed LLC, Jewett, OH is voluntarily recalling various products marketed for weight loss to the consumer level due to findings of undeclared drug ingredients including sibutramine and/or phenolphthalein.
Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010. 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. Phenolphthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not currently approved for marketing in the United States. Health risks associated with phenolphthalein could include potentially serious gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heartbeat, and cancer with long-term use. These products may also interact in life-threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking.
To date, Bee Extremely Amazed is not aware of any adverse event reports related to these products.
