February 17, 2014 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and MyNicKnaxs, LLC have announced a voluntary recall for all lots of several diet pills because they contain undeclared pharmaceutical drug ingredients.
The weight-loss supplements contain sibutramine and/or phenolphthalein. Both these drugs have been taken off the market in the United States due to concern about severe side effects, including gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heart rhythm, and cancer. No injuries have been reported.
MyNicKnaxs, LLC is recalling all lots of the following diet pills:
- Magic Slim
- Fruta Bio
- Slim Easy
- Super Fat Burning Bomb
- Slim Xtreme
- Meizi Evolution
- Meizitang Strong Version Botanical Slimming
- Jianfeijindan Activity Girl
- Japan Hokkaido Cangye Pharmacy Co., LTD Japanese Chinese Formula
- Reduce Weight Fruta Planta
Phenolphthalein was originally sold as an over-the-counter laxative, but the FDA took it off the market over concern that long-term use could increase the risk of cancer. Sibutramine, an appetite-suppressant, was removed from the market in October 2010 due to concern about cardiovascular side effects (heart attack and abnormal heart rhythm), stroke, and seizures.
