U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lab testing confirmed the presence of two drugs in the above products that werenâ€™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.
â€œSibutramine 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,â€ said a press statement.
Perfect Men and Herbal Drink Acai-Man contains tadalafil, a drug that treats erectile-dysfunction. Â â€œTadalafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous level,â€ said the statement.
