FDA Recalls Weight Loss Supplements Due to Hidden Ingredient

Comments Off

The FDA announced a recall on four weight loss supplements – Slimbionic, One Weight Loss Pill, Slim Demand, and Botanical Weight Loss due to the discovery of the ingredient sibutramine. None of the supplements list sibutramine as an ingredient which is a violation of the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004.

As an injury lawyer who works for a law firm that’s represented clients hurt by medications, it’s always frustrating to hear about companies selling supposed health supplements in a dubious manner.

Clearly, failing to list all of your ingredients is a major issue and puts people’s lives at risk. This is especially true for sibutramine which is an FDA-approved ingredient in prescription drugs, but is known to increase blood pressure and is very volatile for individuals with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias (disorders of heart rate or rhythm), or stroke.

Here’s a video discussing sibutramine in weight loss products, along with other hidden ingredients…


All four weight loss supplements were produced by the Young You Corporation. I believe the FDA should investigate this organization and see if they’re affiliated with any other questionable products or manufacturers.
