San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on weight loss products.
The FDA advised consumers and health professionals on June 11, not to purchase or use La Jiao Shou Shen, a product promoted for weight loss, because laboratory analysis revealed that it contains undeclared sibutramine and phenolphthalein.
Sibutramine is a controlled substance removed from the market in 2010 due to safety reasons. It can substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in certain cases and may present a serious risk for patients with arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, or stroke. The product may also interact in life-threatening ways with other drugs.
Phenolphthalein, not an active ingredient in any approved drug in the US, presents a cancer-causing risk according to studies.
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 advises consumers “not to purchase or use La Jiao Shou Shen.”
