B-Perfect Diet Pills Recalled for Hidden Ingredients

B-Perfect Diet Pills Recalled for Hidden Ingredients

June 12, 2014 — B-Perfect, a diet pill, contains sibutramine (appetite-suppressant) and phenolphthalein (laxative). These hidden ingredients are not listed on the label and they can have severe, life-threatening side effects.

Consumers should not to buy or use B-Perfect. Dietary supplements that contain pharmaceutical drugs are adulterated and illegal to sell in the United States. The FDA does not allow sibutramine or phenolphthalein in any prescription or over-the-counter drugs.

According to a warning published on June 5 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA):

“The product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. These products may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.”

Sibutramine, an appetite-suppressant, was originally a prescription drug sold under the brand-name Meridia. The FDA pulled it off the market in October 2010 after studies found that it could have cardiovascular side effects, including heart attack, arrhythmia, and stroke.

Phenolphthalein, a laxative, was an active ingredient in over-the-counter products like Ex-Lax since the early 1900s. It was pulled off the market in 1997 after rodent studies showed carcinogenic (cancer-causing) side effects.
