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

  • Fit Firm and Fabulous brand Ultimate Herbal Slimcap capsules, sold in lots 05/02/2015 to 05/01/2017, labeled “Part 1 of 3” and with a UPC of 5 42423 25422 1

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

According to the FDA, its analysis has found the recalled Dietary Supplements contain undeclared Sibutramine. This ingredient was a previously approved controlled substance that was removed from the US market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The inclusion of Sibutramine in this Dietary Supplement, therefore, makes Ultimate Herbal Slimcap an unapproved drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established and further, subject to recall.

Products containing Sibutramine pose a threat to consumers because the drug is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or Stroke. These products may also interact in life threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Ultimate Herbal Slimcaps, please do not consume them. Instead, kindly return the product to the distributor, outlet or store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall, please contact the company by e-mail at customerservice@fitfirmandfabulous.com from Monday to Friday from 9 AM and 5 PM Eastern Standard Time. You should contact your physician or other qualified healthcare provider if you experience any problems that may be related to taking or using these Dietary Supplements.
