Young You Corporation Issues a Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Weight Loss Pills Found to Contain an Undeclared Drug Ingredient

Young You Corporation has been informed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that four weight loss dietary supplements sold and marketed by the firm contain an undeclared drug ingredient. FDA lab analyses of dietary supplements distributed by the company were found to contain undeclared Sibutramine, an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. The FDA has not approved the following products as drugs; therefore the safety and effectiveness of this product is unknown. All lots of the following dietary supplement products are being recalled:

Brand Size Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient
Slimbionic 30 Capsules/Box Sibutramine
One Weight Loss Pill 30 capsules 30 Capsules/Bottle Sibutramine
SlimDemand Capsules 30 Capsules/Box Sibutramine
Botanical Weight Loss 30 Capsules/Box Sibutramine

The products listed above were sold and distributed nationwide via the internet and at the company’s Weight Loss and Rejuvenation Center in Tarzana.

FDA advises that these products pose a threat 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.

No illnesses or injuries have been reported to the company to date in connection with this product.

Young You Corp. has taken this voluntary action because it is committed to providing accurate information about its products and because of the concern for the health and safety of consumers. Young You Corp. is working with the FDA in the recall process. It sincerely regrets any inconvenience to customers.

Consumers are advised to destroy the above products or return them to the company’s address in Tarzana, CA. Consumers with questions may contact Young You Corp Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 5:30 pm at 818-344-3344.

Brookstone Pharmaceuticals Issues a Voluntary Recall of All Lots of BrookstonePharmaceuticals' Concentrated Acetaminophen Drops

Brookstone Pharmaceuticals, LLC, Alpharetta, GA has initiated a nationwide voluntary recall of all lots of Concentrated Acetaminophen Drops (NDC#42192-504-16) in 16 ounce (473 ml) bulk containers. This 16oz container is comparableto the size generally used to package regular strength acetaminophen liquid preparations.This aspect of the product coupled with the absence of an integrated dosage delivery device is a contributing factor to possible dosing errors, especially inadvertent overdosing. Brookstone has distributed 344 bottles nationally and has donated 5301bottles to charity for international distribution.

Over dosage of acetaminophen may result in liver toxicity, kidney damage, and blood disorders. FDA is aware of several medication error reports that document life threatening or fatal adverse events in children less than three years of age, due to confusion associated with the concentrated versus regular strength acetaminophen liquid.Also, in a recent FDA advisory panel, it was recommended that one of the two strengths of acetaminophen should be removed from the market due to possible confusion which could result in overdosing.

Brookstone’s concentrated acetaminophen contains acetaminophen 80 mg/0.8 mL.Regular strength acetaminophen elixir contains 160 mg/5 ml. The firm is recalling its product to the consumer level as a cautionary measure to minimize any confusion and potential risk to patients from dosing errors.

Brookstone Pharmaceuticals has notified customers that it has voluntarily stopped manufacturing and shipping Concentrated Acetaminophen Drops in bulk containers and has also advised customers (wholesalers and hospitals) to quarantine and hold the product for return to Brookstone Pharmaceuticals for a full refund. Customers with questions about the recall may contact Brookstone Pharmaceuticals, LLC at 1-800-541-4802,option 2. Brookstone has not received any adverse events associated with this product but due to recent advisory panel concerns, Brookstone has taken voluntary action.

The recalled drops were manufactured by Pharmaceutical Associates, Inc. This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.

Customers who have this product in their possession should stop using it immediately.Any adverse events that may be related to the use of this product should be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Program by phone at 1-800-FDA-1088 or by fax at 1-800-FDA-0178 or by mail at MedWatch, HF-2, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787.

L A Weight Loss Recalls L A Hot Drinks Café Au Lait Because of Possible Health Risk

Weight Loss Services, LP of Horsham, PA is recalling 403 cases (16,120 selling units) of L A Hot Drinks Café Au Lait net weight 4.07oz, because one of the ingredients of the product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The ingredient, an instant non-fat dry milk product, was manufactured by Plainview Milk Products Cooperative of Plainview, MN. and further processed by Associated Brands LP, Medina, NY.

Salmonella is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at http://www.cdc.gov.

L A Hot Drinks Café Au Lait was distributed to Georgia, Illinois, and Washington. Consumers would have purchased this product through L A Weight Loss Centers.

The product is packaged in retail boxes with a UPC Code of 55958-00365 on the back panel. The front of the box is printed with “L A Hot Drinks Café Au Lait”. There are 7 envelopes per box.

Herring Produce Company Recalls Anaheim Peppers Because of Possible Health Risk

Herring Produce, Lake Park, Georgia is voluntarily recalling production lot number 0801206 of whole Anaheim Peppers out of an abundance of precaution because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the Herring Produce Anaheim Pepper products and the company is working with FDA to inform all retail consumers of this recall. FDA is not linking this isolated positive sample to any current or ongoing Salmonella outbreaks.

Salmonella is an organism which may cause serious and sometimes fatal infections particularly in young children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and/or abdominal pain. Long term complications can include arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis and severe arthritis. For more information, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website at www.cdc.gov.

The whole Anaheim Peppers were shipped June 9-19, 2009 to retail outlets in New York state, Ohio and Massachusetts. The Anaheim Peppers being recalled were shipped in half-bushel boxes with production lot number 0801206 located on a red sticker on the box. Boxes are white, wax cardboard, Herring Produce boxes with a printed picture of yellow squash and green zucchini.

All Herring Produce customers have been notified of the potential contamination and affected produce has been recalled.

The recall comes after routine sampling by the New York State Department of Agriculture on behalf of the U.S. Department of Agriculture discovered a positive sample in the affected production lot. Herring Produce has ceased production and shipments from this production area. FDA is not linking this isolated positive sample to any current or ongoing Salmonella outbreaks.

Anaheim peppers are a raw agricultural product that needs to be washed before consumption. These peppers are typically cooked, but they can be eaten raw. Heating to a high enough temperature would kill Salmonella bacteria.

If customers have purchased Anaheim Peppers they are advised to contact their retailer to find out if the products they purchased were affected by the recall. Consumers who have questions about this recall may contact Gulf Stream Produce at 919-217-2870 or Herring Produce at 229-559-0101.
