The Food and Drug Administration said it wants Cal-Ban 3000 diet tablets and capsules taken off the market because they can cause throat obstructions and their weight-loss claims are unproven. The FDA sent a letter to Health Care Products Inc. of Lutz, Fla., saying the agency would take legal action if the company does not stop distribution of the product, whose main ingredient is guar gum, which swells with water and creates a sense of fullness when eaten.

Officials from D&F Industries, a health-products manufacturer with offices in Anaheim and Orange, could not be reached for comment Friday.

For four decades, the mischievous image has bared itself to sunscreen buyers on billboards nationwide: an adorable little girl, her tan line and backside revealed to the world by a cocker spaniel tugging at her bikini bottom. But now it's the 1990s, and that overexposed image received a make-over Monday when a 2-year-old boy from Garden Grove was picked from about 100,000 contestants to represent a national sunscreen maker as the Little Mister Coppertone for a new advertising campaign.
