Healthy People Company recalled seven different supplements for unapproved ingredients that could pose significant health risks to people who consume them.
Healthy People Company’s recall affects:
- Mince Belle
- PERFECT Men
- EVER Slim
- Herbal Drink Acai-Man Mangosteen
- EVER SLIM Shake Mix Strawberrry
- EVER SLIM Shake Mix Chocolate
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lab testing confirmed the presence of two drugs in the above products that weren’t approved for use.
Sibutramine is a drug used as an appetite suppressant that was present in Mince Bellie, Everlax, Ever Slim, and Ever Slim shake mixes.
“Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk to patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke,” said a press statement.
Perfect Men and Herbal Drink Acai-Man contains tadalafil, a drug that treats erectile-dysfunction. “Tadalafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous level,” said the statement.
Healthy People will expand its testing efforts as a response to this nationwide recall.
