Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Nutritional Supplements are subject to this recall:

  • Akttive High Performance Fat Burner Gold Capsules, sold in aluminum bottles containing 30 gold-colored capsules per bottle and labeled with lot number 000185004400, UPC 859189005005 and expiration 12/17. The products were distributed from January 2012 until July 2015.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the supplement’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Supplements are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the FDA, the product was sold directly to distributors and online to consumers at http://www.akttive.com and shipped to the following states: NV, FL, NY, AZ, MA, NJ, CA, MD, TX, VA and MI.

The firm was informed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that a sample of Akttive High Performance Fat Burner Gold Capsules was found to contain Sibutramine, Desmethylsibutramine and Phenolphthalein. Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the US market in October 2010 (due to increased risk of seizures, heart attacks, arrhythmia and strokes).

Phenolphthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not approved for marketing in the United States. These undeclared ingredients make this product an unapproved new drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established.

Products containing Sibutramine pose a threat to consumers because Sibutramine can increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a risk for those with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure or stroke.

These products may also interact in life threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking. Health risks associated with phenolphthalein could include potentially serious gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heartbeat, and cancer with long-term use. No illnesses or injuries have been reported to the company to date in connection with this product.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Nutritional Supplements, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store outlet where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall, please contact the company at 01157-300-487-0534, Monday To Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time or by e-mail at info@akttive.com.
