FDA Safety Warning for Asset Bee Pollen
May 12, 2014 — A laboratory test conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has defected sibutramine in Asset Bee Pollen. This ingredient was pulled off the market in 2010 for safety reasons and is illegal in dietary supplements. The label declared it contained “Pure New Zealand Bee Pollen.”
The FDA recommends against using Asset Bee Pollen because it can interact with other medications and cause life-threatening side effects. According to the Safety Communication:
“The product poses a threat to consumers because 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.”
