Additional Tainted Diet Supplements Discovered
The FDA is warning consumers not to purchase or use three tainted products sold for weight loss: Body Beauty 5 Days Slimming Coffee, 1 Day Diet, and Diet Master.
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 Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was withdrawn from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons.
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.
