News of the recall has been announced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), where the indication is that the diet pills have been adulterated. The pills were manufactured by USPlabs LLC,, under the OxyElite Pro brand.
In a review of 46 medical records submitted to the FDA by the Hawaii Department of Health, the records indicated that 27 patients, or 58 percent, had taken a dietary supplement labeled as OxyElite Pro prior to becoming ill. Seventeen of the 27 patients (or 63 percent) reported that OxyElite Pro was the only dietary supplement they were taking. One death has occurred among these patients, another patient has required a liver transplant, and others await liver transplants.
The FDA recommends that consumers who believe they have been harmed by using a dietary supplement should contact their health care practitioner. If consumers think they have suffered a serious harmful effect or illness from a dietary supplement, healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects.
News of this recall comes a few days after the Digital Journal reported that diet pills containing human flesh had been seized in South Korea.
