TruVision Recalls Products Due to Presence of Potentially Dangerous Ingredients

On April 27, 2023, TruVision Health issued a recall of various dietary supplement products because they contain hordenine and/or octodrine/DMHA, compounds that the FDA considers to be “possibly unsafe” and which are not permitted to be sold as dietary supplements.

Hordenine and octodrine/DMHA are sometimes sold as a weight loss ingredient because they may enhance metabolism. DMHA, is also known as 1,5-Dimethylhexylamine, 1,5-DMHA, or by names such as Amidrine or Vaporpac. Hordenine may have stimulant effects and side effects such as rapid heart rate and high blood pressure. Some consumers using the recalled products have reported experiencing chest pain, chills, diarrhea, dizziness/lightheadedness, fatigue, headache, high blood pressure, high heart rate, jitters, nausea, nervousness, rash, stomach pain or upset, sweating and vomiting.

Recalled TruVision products (see product photos) were packaged as capsules in blister packs and cardboard cartons or as stick packs in 30 count bags with the TruVision Health or Truvy brand name. Products were sold online and distributed throughout the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland and England. They can be further identified by the following:
