Weight Loss Supplement Recalled Due To Undeclared Drugs
Sibutramine, the active ingredient in the obesity drug Meridia, was removed from the U.S. market in October 2010 because it can substantially increase blood pressure and pulse rate in some individuals, and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. This drug may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.
Bethel 30 is packaged in white plastic bottles containing 30 green capsules per bottle and is marked with lot# 120514 and an expiration date of 12/05/2014.
It was sold online at www.bethel30.com and through direct sales from the company’s New York, NY office.
Consumers who have purchased this supplement should discontinue use immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any adverse side effects. Consumers and healthcare providers are also encouraged to report any adverse reactions to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
