Here are two recalls that might not have consumers rushing to get their money back. One is for a weight-loss supplement, the other for a sex enhancer.
The Food and Drug Administration announced today that a lab analysis of Joyful Slim Herb Supplement was found to contain desmethyl sibutramine. Most people know sibutramine as Meridia, a prescription weight-loss drug.
This month, the agency similarly announced that some batches of Good Health's Vialipro had been found to contain sulfoaildenafil, a cousin of sildenafil. Most people know that drug as Viagra.
The ingredients weren't declared on the supplements' labels and can cause a variety of potential problems. Sibutramine can increase blood pressure and may raise stroke risk; sulfoaildenafil can interact with prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin.
