Lucy’s Weight Loss System of Arlington, Texas, is recalling all lots of Pink Bikini and Shorts on the Beach Capsules because they contain an undeclared, banned ingredient. Consumers who have purchased this product should not use it.
The recall includes all colors, 30 count, 750MG per capsules. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found these products contain Sibutramine, Phenolphthalein, and/or Diclofenac, which are not declared on the label.
Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010. It is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate.
Phenophthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, that was removed from the market after it was found to cause cancer.
Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Because it is undeclared, it can cause problems including fatak heart attack or stroke for people already taking NSAIDS, or those with allergies, underlying illnesses or with recent cardiac bypass surgery.
These products were sold nationwide to consumers via PinkBikini.BigCartel.com and Waisted With Lucy Retail store.
