What’s the problem?
February 25, 2011 – Earlier this month, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) notified Svelte 30 Nutritional Consultants that a sample of Svelte 30 orange & gray capsule tested positive for Sibutramine, a controlled substance which is not approved for the Svelte product.
Svelte 30 orange & gray capsules are marketed as a Natural Herb for Weight Loss. Svelte 30 Herb Supplement is packaged in plastic bottles containing 30 capsules per bottle and bears UPC #’s from 04-3000 to 04-5999. Were MFD: 10/22/2010 with EXP: 10/21/2012. This lot would have been available for sale on January 03, 2011. The product was sold directly to individual customers in the company’s Kissimmee, Florida sales office.
Why is Sibutramine a Controlled Substance?
A high number of cardiovascular events has been observed in certain individuals taking the drug versus a control group. Last year, FDA noted that sibutramine increases the risk of heart attacks and stroke in patients with a history of cardiovascular disease. This product may also interact in life-threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking.
