One of the largest consumer markets in the United States involves diet aids and supplements as Americans faced with long hours at work and the demands of family find it increasingly difficult to lose weight. At the same time, most consumers are wary of dangerous and unnatural weight loss products that might be harmful, and as a result, many marketers of weight loss products represent that their products are safe and natural. Unfortunately, not all such representations are true. Indeed, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now warning consumers not to buy or use “Slim Xtreme Herbal Slimming Capsule.” This product, distributed by Globe All Wellness, is widely sold on the Internet and touted as “100% natural.” However according to the FDA, laboratory tests reveal that “Slim Xtreme Herbal Slimming Capsule” contains sibutramine, which is a controlled substance that was actually restricted from sale in the U.S. owing to an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.
