Super Fat Burner Diet Pill Recall

March 25, 2014 — Recall Notification for Super Fat Burner capsules — New Life Nutritional Center, LLC, based in New York, has announced a voluntary recall for Super Fat Burner, Maxi Gold, and Esmeralda weight-loss pills. They contain hidden prescription drugs that are not listed on the ingredient label, in violation of federal law.

What is the problem?

An analysis from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found sibutramine (appetite-suppressant) and/or phenolphthalein (laxative) in Super Fat Burner. Both of these drugs were taken off the market years ago over safety concerns. It is illegal for dietary supplements to contain pharmaceutical drug ingredients.

Sibutramine (brand-name Meridia) was recalled in October 2010 after a study linked it to an increased risk of heart attack, irregular heart rhythm, stroke, and seizures.

Phenolphthalein was a popular over-the-counter laxative for much of the 20th century. It was taken off the market after animal studies showed a wide range of carcinogenic (cancer-causing) effects associated with long-term use.
