Late last year the FDA alerted consumers to not purchase or consume a list of over 25 products marketed a dietary supplements or weight-loss aids after the products were found to contain undeclared and potentially dangerous ingredients. The FDA has now expanded this alert to include a total of 72 different products.
These undeclared pharmaceutical ingredients found in some of the supplements include controlled substances, drugs not approved for sale in the U.S., experimental chemicals, and suspected carcinogens.
The FDA strongly advises consumers who have taken these medications to immediately discontinue use and contact their healthcare provider immediately. Health risks associated with these products can be very serious, including high blood pressure, seizure, tachycardia, heart palpations, stroke and even heart attack.
