Silver Spring, MD, 2016-Jun-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Body Shot Bar is voluntarily recalling all lots distributed March 1- May 6 2016 of Step 2 60 gold capsule (350MG per) capsules to the consumer level. Step 2 has been found positive for Sibutramine after FDA sampling and testing.
Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010. 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. Phenolphthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not currently approved for marketing in the United States. Health risks associated with phenolphthalein could include potentially serious gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heartbeat, and cancer with long-term use. These undeclared ingredients make these products unapproved new drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established. These products may also interact in life-threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking.
