EZVille and the FDA announced a recall of all lots of Solo Slim and Solo Slim Extra Strength capsules after FDA lab analyses showed the products to contain undeclared didesmethyl sibutramine. Sibutramine is an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. Solo Slim poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke.
The FDA has not approved Solo Slim, therefore the safety and effectiveness of the product is unknown. All lots of this product with expiration dates including and prior to August 2013 are being recalled. Consumers who have Solo Slim products in their possession should stop using them immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they experience any adverse effects related to the use of these products.
