RECALL: NSAID Detected in Weight Loss Caps
Lucy's Weight Loss System announced a voluntary recall of all lots of Pink Bikini White Powder Capsules after it was found to contain a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)'s sampling and testing revealed that the capsules contained diclofenac, an NSAID that works by reducing pain and inflammation. Consuming diclofenac can increase the risk of a fatal heart attack or stroke, especially if patients use it long-term or at high doses. For pregnant women, use of diclofenac during the 3rd trimester may harm the baby.
Pink Bikini White Powder is packaged as white powder capsules in clear bottles. The recalled lots have the expiration date of 7/30/2017. The capsules were distributed nationwide via a website and retail stores. The Company is notifying consumers by a press release and is arranging for return. Those in possession of the product should discontinue use and discard.
