Weight Loss Supplement Recalled
On June 1, 2016, Dream Body Weight Loss issued a recall of all lots of the following weight loss supplements listed because they were found to contain undeclared sibutramine:
- Dream Body Extreme Gold 800 mg 30 gold capsules
- Dream Body 450 mg 30 white capsules
- Dream Body Advanced 400mg 30 purple capsules
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 Dream Body supplements are packaged in clear packer jars and brown foil packets and were distributed nationwide from January 2013 to June 16, 2016 online and in retail stores.
Consumers who have purchased these supplements 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.
