Weight Loss Supplement Containing Undeclared Drug Recalled
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.
BEST SLIM is packaged in bottles of 40 pills and can be identified by Lot # 109400 and Expiration Date Dec. 31, 2016.
It was distributed nationwide between April 2013 and July 2013 in retail stores and through internet sales at www.Bestslim.net.
