All three products were found to contain sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was withdrawn from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons

Sibutramine is known to increase blood pressure and/or pulse and may pose a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke.

In addition, Diet Master was also found to contain phenolphthalein. Phenolphthalein was an ingredient in some OTC laxatives that the FDA reclassified as “not generally recognized as safe and effective” in 1999.

Consumers are to stop using these products immediately and discard them.
