    Tonight I just bought Clinical Strength Green Tea from the makers of HydroxyCut. I read about the Recalls for their products, but failed to find mention if this one is recalled as well. Thought I would ask here and see. The ingredients are:
    Camellia sinensis, Cissus quadrangularis, Caffeine, Black Tea extract, white tea extract, Wu long tea extract, Rooibos tea extract, Guarana.
    Other: Microcrystaline Cellulose, Hydroxyproplycellulose, Croscarmellose Sodium, Crospovidone, Natural clear coating (hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, glycerine, demineralized water), stearic acid, magnesium stearated, Silicate.

    Any idea?

    Giving an over the counter product a name like "Clinical Strength" is dangerously close to inviting the Federal Trade Commission to investigate. It makes it sound like it is claiming to be a medicine.

    "Clinical strength" sounds a bit dubious, considering it's an over-the-counter supplement. I don't think I've ever heard of green tea being prescribed by a doctor.

    Anyways, I think you're ok for now. That product isn't listed on the FDA bulletin..
