Recall of Herbal Slimming Supplement Spiked with Drug

The U.S. FDA posted a notice dated August 18, 2010 indicating that Slim-30 Herbal Supplement (Lot 6032101) has been recalled by its distributor, J & H Besta Corp. FDA lab analysis of the product had found it to contain undeclared Desmethyl Sibutramin, similar in structure to Sibutramine, an appetite-suppressant drug for weight loss.

FDA advises that this product poses a threat to consumers because Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke. However, no illnesses or injuries have been reported to the company to date in connection with this product.

The product was sold to distributors and retail stores nationwide and via internet sales.
