Nature’s Universe Thinogenics Recall
April 18, 2014 — Nature’s Universe is recalling all lots of Thinogenics sold prior to February 6, 2014 because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has detected undeclared sibutramine. Sibutramine is an appetite-suppressant that was pulled off the market in October 2010 after it was linked to seizures, heart attacks, arrhythmia, and stroke.
Nature’s Universe Thinogenics was sold as a weight-loss pill in bottles containing 30 capsules. Customers should stop using the product and throw away any remaining pills.
What is the problem with Sibutramine?
The prescription diet drug sibutramine was originally sold under the brand-name Meridia. In 2011, results of the SCOUT clinical trial were published in Diabetes — researchers warned that patients on sibutramine had a 16% increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and death compared to patients on a placebo.
According to the FDA Drug Safety Communication:
“Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and can present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. This product can also interact in life-threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking.”
