The FDA is “advising consumers not to purchase or use Infinity.”

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on safety alerts for weight loss products.

On April 11, the US FDA advised consumers not to purchase or use Infinity, as the laboratory analysis confirmed that it contains sibutramine. Infinity is promoted as weight loss product sold in some stores and on certain websites.

Sibutramine, removed from the market in 2010 for safety reasons, can substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in certain cases. This controlled substance may pose a serious risk for patients who suffer from coronary artery disease, stroke, arrhythmias, or congestive heart failure. In addition, the specific products may interact with other medications a consumer might be taking and can cause life-threatening adverse events.

Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com monitor daily and update the website providing accurate information on all relevant FDA safety alerts. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds “we are determined to keep an eye on FDA announcements concerning weight loss products and inform the public. For that reason," he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on investigating these safety alerts and getting the word out.”

The FDA is “advising consumers not to purchase or use Infinity.” And the agency adds “healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these products to the FDA.”
