Products found to contain undeclared medicines

The United States: Life & More, L.L.C. issues nationwide voluntary recall of Akttive High Performance Fat Burner Gold Capsules due to undeclared drug ingredients
Life & More, L.L.C. is voluntarily recalling 783 Bottles from Lot #000185004400 Akttive High Performance Fat Burner Gold capsules weight loss supplements. The firm was informed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that a sample of Akttive High Performance Fat Burner Gold capsules was found to contain Sibutramine, desmethylsibutramine, and Phenolphthalein.

Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010 (due to increased risk of seizures, heart attacks, arrhythmia and strokes). Phenolphthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not approved for marketing in the United States. These undeclared ingredients make this product an unapproved new drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established.

No illnesses or injuries have been reported to the company to date in connection with this product.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details:

In Hong Kong, the above product is not a registered pharmaceutical product. Related news has been released by the US FDA, and was posted on the Drug Office website on 3 July 2015.
