Detox Transforms Health and Nutrition recently announced a voluntary recall of five dietary supplements after they were found to contain undeclared drug ingredients. They are EDGE Amplified Weight Release, iNGiGO, AMPD Gold Bee Pollen, BtRim Max, and iNSANE Bee Pollen.
Two of the diet supplements were found to contain undeclared phenolphthalein by the FDA. Phenolphthalein is a chemical that has not been approved for use in the U.S. It can cause cancer, irregular heartbeat, and GI problems. Two of the other supplements were found to contain undeclared phenolphthalein and fluoxetine. Fluoxetine can be dangerous if it is used in combination with other drugs, such as MAO inhibitors and tryptophans. The use of fluoxetine can lead to seizures, abnormal bleeding, and suicidal thinking.
The final diet supplement, AMPD Bee Pollen, has been found to contain undeclared sildenafil. Sildenafil is a nitrate that can cause men to experience life-threatening hypotensive events. Other medications and alcohol consumption can increase the effects of sildenafil.
In general, most experts recommend that consumers do not take diet supplements. Studies have shown that they are largely ineffective and can contain harmful ingredients. If you have been harmed by a diet supplement, you have the right to seek compensation. Call the Houston product liability attorneys at Kennedy Hodges at 888-894-0119.
