Dietary Supplements for Weight Loss recalled due to unsafe ingredient

Olaax Corp announced February 21 of this year that they are voluntarily recalling one of their products, MAXILOSS WEIGHT ADVANCED soft gels, due to the lack of label representation of the banned substances they contain. Sibutramine was a previously approved controlled substance for the treatment of obesity that was removed from the U.S. market in October 2010 for safety reasons, making these products unapproved new drugs. Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk to patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke.

MAXILOSS WEIGHT ADVANCED Dietary Supplement is marketed as a Natural Herb for
Weight Loss. MAXILOSS WEIGHT ADVANCED Dietary Supplement softgels are packaged
in a green or blue box containing 3 X 12 blister packs per box. The product was sold to distributors nationwide and known to be counterfeit versions are sold on various online sites. This product was
distributed nationwide in US from January 2011 to November 2012.
