Slim-30 Herbal Supplement Recalled

The Slim-30 herbal supplement is being recalled by its U.S. distributor J&H Besta Corp. The company says that the Slim-30 supplement was found to contain N-Desmethyl sibutramine and traces of sibutramine, both drugs used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. During a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lab analysis, the government agency found the undeclared drugs in Slim-30.

Sibutramine can increase blood pressure and one’s pulse rate to unhealthy levels. In a statement posted on its website, the FDA warn people who have a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke should not take sibutramine.

While Slim-30 is marketed as a natural weight loss herb, natural does not automatically mean safe. The FDA recommends anyone who has bought Slim-30 to return it for a full refund.
