The FDA is advising consumers to not purchase or use Asset Bee Pollen, a product promoted and sold for weight loss on various websites and retail stores.
A laboratory analysis found that Asset Bee Pollen contains sibutramine, a controlled substance that was removed from the market in 2010. Sibutramine is known to significantly increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients . Sibutramine may also present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. The products may also cause potentially fatal interactions with other drugs the consumer may be taking.
Asset Bee Pollen is supplied as 500mg capsules in 60-count bottles.
