Recall of "Slimming" Supplements Spiked with Drug

On April 20, 2009 the U.S. FDA reported a nationwide recall of dietary supplements distributed by Universal ABC Beauty Supply International. FDA lab analyses of the dietary supplements distributed by the company showed them to contain undeclared Sibutramine (trade name Meridia), an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. These dietary supplements are not supposed to contain Sibutramine. The FDA has not approved these products, therefore the safety and effectiveness of these products is unknown.
