Super Fat Burner, a diet drug made by New Life Nutritional Center, is now being recalled nationwide after it was found to contain illegal ingredients. A laboratory analysis conducted by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that Super Fat Burner capsules contain sibutramine and/or phenolphthalein, making the product illegal to sell as a dietary supplement. Side effects of these drugs may include seizure, heart attack, arrhythmia, stroke, and death.

What’s the Problem?
On March 25, 2014, a nationwide recall was announced for all lots of Super Fat Burner capsules after they were determined to contain sibutramine and/or phenolphthalein, undeclared active ingredients. First marketed under the brand name Meridia, sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in 2010 after it was linked to seizures, heart attacks, arrhythmia and strokes. Phenolphthalein is a former laxative ingredient that was banned over concerns of carcinogenicity.
According to the Super Fat Burner recall notice:
“These undeclared ingredients make these products unapproved new drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established. At this time no illnesses or injuries have been reported to New Life Nutritional Center in connection with these products.”
