- Magic Slim

- Super Fat Burning Bomb
- Slim Xtreme
- Meizi Evolution

These products have been found to contain the undeclared active pharmaceutical ingredients phenolphthalein and/or sibutramine, making them illegal to sell as dietary supplements. All lots of the above-listed diet pills are being recalled. To date, no injuries have been linked to the products.
Phenolphthalein was formerly contained in many popular over-the-counter (OTC) laxative products, but due to concerns over carcinogenicity, it is no longer approved in the U.S. Sibutramine is a Schedule IV appetite suppressant that was recalled nationwide in October 2010 after it was linked to cardiovascular risks including heart attack, arrhythmia, and stroke.
These undeclared ingredients make the weight loss pills being recalled by MyNicKnaxs, LLC, unapproved new drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established. The long-term consumption of these weight loss supplements could result in:
- Serious gastrointestinal disturbances
- Irregular heartbeat
