Boston (ChatterShmatter) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced an expansion of their list of tainted and potentially unsafe weight-loss products.
Towards the end of 2008, the FDA revealed the first version of this list and it contained 28 different weight-loss products, since then, that has now grown up to 72.
These products are a part of a nationwide alert as they contain ingredients that are not revealed to the public.
These ingredients consist of active pharmaceutical ingredients which are undeclared and may be very unsafe for consumers.
Some examples of these include drugs that have not been approved by the FDA, such as cetilistat, fluoxetine, and others.
Some of the new weight loss or dietary supplements added to the list include Harbal Xenicol, Xsvelten, and many more.
The idea behind the list is to alert consumers about the potential dangers of these dietary supplements.
