The FDA and J&H Besta Corp have recalled the Joyful Slim Herb Supplement and the Slim-30 Herb Supplement due to traces of sibutramine, commonly known as Meridia, contained in the supplements.
Earlier this year the FDA issued a warning to patients about the use of sibutramine after their review suggested it was associated with an increase risk of stroke and heart attack amongst patients with cardiovascular disease, Medpage Today reports.
Although the company has yet to receive a report of an adverse event from taking the supplement, customers who have purchased the product should cease use and return it to the company for a refund.
