What’s the problem?
August 19, 2010 - This week, the J & H Besta Corp. of Hicksville, NY, was informed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that FDA lab analysis of Slim-30 Herb Supplement Lot 6032101 distributed by the company was found to contain undeclared Desmethyl Sibutramine, similar in structure to Sibutramine. The FDA has not approved Slim-30 Herbal Supplement, therefore the safety and effectiveness of the product is unknown. On July 16, 2010, J & H Besta recalled Lot/Code 032009 and is now expanding the recall action to include Lot 6032101.
Slim-30 Herb Supplement is marketed as a Natural Herb for Weight Loss, and is packaged in plastic bottles containing 30 capsules per bottle and bears UPC 8 31457 005009 2.
The FDA advises that this product poses a threat to consumers because Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke.
The product in question was sold to distributors and retail stores nationwide and via Internet sales.
