Ultimate Herbal Slimcaps 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.
Recalled Ultimate Herbal Slimcap capsules were distributed nationwide through internet sales. They can be identified by the following:
- UPC: Part 1 of 3, UPC 5 42423 25422 1
- Lots: 05/02/2015 to 05/01/2017
Consumers who have purchased this supplement should discontinue use 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.
