Weight Loss Supplement Containing Hidden Drug Recalled

On October 15, 2018, Fat Burners Zone issued a recall of one lot of its Zero Xtreme weight loss supplement because it was found to contain 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 Zero Xtreme capsules were distributed nationwide via internet through the website fatburnerszone.com. They are packaged in gray aluminum bottles with gray aluminum caps (30 capsules per bottle) and can be identified by the following:
  • Lot #: #1220062085

  • Expires: 03/2020
Consumers that purchased recalled Zero Xtreme capsules should return them to place of purchase and contact their doctor.
