Tainted Weight Loss Supplements

It's human nature. We want the easy solution. The no-sweat exercise gizmo, the magic fat loss pill, a eat-all-you-want diet, etc.

It's the reason why supplement companies make gazillions of dollars.

Unfortunately, many of these weight loss supplements may not just be money wasters but could also be extremely hazardous to your health. Many of these pills contain undeclared ingredients that can put you at risk for a variety of medical conditions such as stroke, heart attack, seizures, etc.

From FDA website:

FDA Expands Warning to Consumers About Tainted Weight Loss Pills

List increases from 28 to 69 products; Agency seeking recalls

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is expanding its nationwide alert to consumers about tainted weight loss pills that contain undeclared, active pharmaceutical ingredients. On December 22, 2008, FDA warned consumers not to purchase or consume 28 different products marketed for weight loss. Since that time, FDA analysis has identified 41 more tainted weight loss products that may put consumers’ health at risk.

These weight loss products, some of which are marketed as "dietary supplements," are promoted and sold on various Web sites and in some retail stores. Some of the products claim to be "natural" or to contain only "herbal" ingredients, but actually contain potentially harmful ingredients not listed on the product labels or in promotional advertisements. These products have not been approved by the FDA, are illegal and may be potentially harmful to unsuspecting consumers.

The following is a list of dietary supplements that have been banned by the FDA. Here is the original FDA press release ==> FDA Expands Warning to Consumers About Tainted Weight Loss Pills
