Step 2 Weight Loss Supplement Recalled

On June 7, 2016, The Body Shot Bar issued a recall of all lots of weight loss supplement Step 2 60 gold capsule (350 mg per) capsules which were distributed between March 1 through May 6 2016 because they were found to contain undeclared sibutramine.  

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 Step 2 is packaged in a white bottle in blue and gold and was distributed nationwide through the website www.thebodyshotbar.com. Affected lots have an expiration date of 7/30/2017.

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.
