August 24, 2012 – Samantha Lynn Inc. of Los Angeles, CA., is now recalling the dietary supplement Reumofan Plus to the consumer level due to potential undeclared drug ingredients. An analysis conducted by researchers at the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that Reumofan Plus contains undeclared methocarbamol, dexamethasone, and diclofenac. According to the FDA, use of Reumofan Plus has the potential to lead to life-threatening hypersensitivity reactions and anaphylaxis that could cause an increase in central nervous system (CNS) depression.
