Bee Extremely Amazed LLC of Ohio is voluntarily recalling dietary supplements marketed for weight loss because the contain undeclared drug ingredients. Those drugs are sibutramine and/or phenolphthalein.
Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant withdrawn from the U.S. market in 2010 since it can substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patient and may present a significant risk for anyone with a history of heart problems. Phenolphthalein is an ingredient used over-the-counter laxatives, but it is not approved for use in the U.S. because of concerns that it could cause cancer and could cause serious GI disturbances and irregular heartbeat.
