FDA Announces Voluntary Recall of Thinogenics Weight Loss Capsules
On April 18, 2014 the FDA announced the recall of weight loss drug Thinogenics manufactured by Nature’s Universe. This announcement comes after the FDA’s analysis of the drug determined that the product contained the appetite suppressant sibutramine.
Nature’s Universe notified the public that it is recalling all lots of Thinogenics sold internationally prior to February 6, 2014. The capsules were found to contain sibutramine, an appetite suppressant withdrawn from the U.S. market in 2010 due to an increased risk of seizures, heart attacks, arrhythmia and strokes.
All Thinogenics consumers who purchased the product online prior to February 6, 2014 are advised by Nature’s Universe to immediately discontinue use and to return the product to the manufacturer. For more information regarding the recall, the FDA has posted Nature’s Universe’s press release announcing the voluntary recall on April 9, 2014.
