Company Recalls Second Weight Loss Supplement

On December 19, 2014, Bethel Nutritional Consulting, Inc. issued a recall of one lot of weight loss supplement B-Lipo Capsules because they were found to contain Lorcaserin.

Lorcaserin is a prescription medication for weight loss that can cause difficulty thinking, hallucinations, and feeling of intense excitement to changes in blood sugar and heart rate. It can also cause life-threatening adverse effects such as damage to the heart valve and serotonin syndrome.

  • Lot# 20213

  • Expiration: 12/22/2016

  • Barcode: 160126 417509

  • 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.

    See's Review of Weight Loss Supplements for tests of related products.

    This is the second recall of a weight loss supplement from Bethel Nutritional Consulting today (see the other recall here). The company was warned for making drug claims about other supplements in October 2014, and issued recalls of other weight loss products in 2013.
