Pink Bikini, Shorts on the Beach Dietary Supplements Recall

An FDA analysis of Pink Bikini (white capsules, blue capsules and gold capsules) and Shorts on the Beach (blue capsules and gold capsules) found these products to be tainted with Sibutramine, Phenolphthalein, and/or Diclofenac, and that this active ingredients are not declared on the label of the product. 

Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010. 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. Phenophthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not currently approved for marketing in the U.S. Health risks associated with phenolphthalein could include potentially serious gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heartbeat, and cancer with long-term use. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). 

The use of diclofenac in patients already taking NSAIDS, with allergies, with underlying illnesses or with recent cardiac bypass surgery, could lead to gastrointestinal disturbances, fatal heart attack or stroke. Out of an abundance of caution, Lucy’s Weight Loss System is recommending that Pink Bikini and Shorts on the Beach, in all strengths and pill colors not be consumed, as they may contain any of these undeclared active pharmaceutical ingredients and/or an unknown active pharmaceutical ingredient. Any of these undeclared ingredients would make this product an unapproved new drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established.

FDA warns cannabis companies selling CBD supplements

News on the CBD front: In February 2016, FDA issued eight warning letters to firms that market unapproved new drugs that allegedly contain cannabidiol (CBD). FDA had previously issued six such letters in February 2015. FDA has tested these products, and many were found to not contain the levels of CBD they claimed to contain. It is important to note that these products are not approved by FDA for the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of any disease. Consumers should beware purchasing and using any such products.

FDA Recalls Skinny Latina Million Dollar Marinade Over Undeclared Ingredient

New of a recent recall of Skinny Latina Million Dollar Marinade bottles from stores for containing undeclared soy. People who are allergic to soy should not consume the product.

The product is available in clear 12-ounce glass bottles with a label on the back stating when it is best consumed. All bottles with the label, “Best By 12-15-15” or earlier, are being recalled. The bottles did not include the corrected labels stating that these contain soy.
The recall was triggered by the discovery of soy in its gluten-free teriyaki sauce ingredient, without the packaging indicating its presence. It is important to note that Skinny Latina Foods Inc. voluntarily recalled the distributed products immediately after, the same press release states.
