    Consumer Directed Questions and Answers about FDA’s Initiative Against Contaminated Weight Loss Products

    FDA has developed these questions and answers (Q & A’s) to help consumers, health care practitioners, and the general public understand FDA’s actions regarding weight loss products contaminated with various prescription drugs and chemicals. Many of these products are marketed as dietary supplements. Unfortunately, FDA cannot test and identify all weight loss products on the market that have potentially harmful contaminants in order to assure their safety. Enforcement actions and consumer advisories for unapproved products only cover a small fraction of the potentially hazardous weight loss products marketed to consumers on the internet and at some retail establishments.

    1. What undeclared drugs and/or chemicals are contained in the weight loss products associated with this action?

    FDA laboratory tests have revealed the presence of sibutramine, fenproporex, fluoxetine, bumetanide, furosemide, phenytoin, rimonabant, cetilistat, and phenolphthalein in weight loss products being sold over-the-counter. The tainted products are listed below in alphabetical order along with the undeclared drug and/or chemical ingredient.

    Meanwhile fast food, alcohol and tobacco are still legal. FDA is so full of crap. I wonder how much money the tobacco industry gives to the government (FDA and congressmen) a year.

    Uh oh.. Did a friend of a relative of a constituent die? Because that's how dumb laws get passed these days.

    If this keeps up, we will either have no supplements to choose from. Or we'll have to start mail-ordering stuff from out of the country.
