eBay User Issues Nationwide Recall of Hydro Pineapple Burn Due to the Presence of Sibutramine

By rlsmetro on
New Jersey

eBay Seller ID: jongu 4308 voluntarily recalled all lots of Hydro Pineapple Burn to the consumer level.

FDA analysis has found the product to contain undeclared sibutramine. Sibutramine was an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss but was withdrawn from the market because of safety issues.

Officials say the presence of sibutramine in Hydro Pineapple Burn renders it an unapproved drug for which safety and efficacy has not been established and therefore subject to recall.

To date, jongu 4308 has not received any report of adverse events related to this recall.

Risk Statement: Products containing sibutramine pose a health risk to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke.
