Fit Firm and Fabulous is voluntarily recalling some lots of Ultimate Herbal Slimcap capsules because it contains sibutramine, a drug that was removed from the market 5 years ago. Because it contains this ingredient, the product is an unapproved drug. Sibutramine poses a threat to consumers because it substantially increases blood pressure and pulse rate in some patients and can present a significant risk for patients who have a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke.
This product may also interact in life threatening ways with other medications a patient is taking. No reports of illness or adverse reactions have been received to date.
