An FDA Warning on Some OTC Weight Loss Drugs

Posted:

The New Year traditionally means making resolutions and for many people, it's losing weight. If that is your goal for next year, you should know about this warning released Tuesday from the Food and Drug Administration.

The agency has identified 28-weight loss products that contain potentially harmful, even deadly, ingredients. Many of these pills are advertised as "natural" fat burners and sell under names such as "Imelda Perfect Slim", "Shape-pro-slim", "Slim-Perfect" and even "Venom Hyper-Drive 3.0."  The FDA says these products, and others, contain prescription drugs in dosages well above the maximum daily limits. The agency says it is even considering criminal charges against some companies that have not complied with recommended recalls.
