J & H Besta Corporation of Hicksville, New York, just issued a voluntary nationwide recall of <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/defective_drugs">Joyful Slim Herb Supplement, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced.

An FDA lab analysis of Joyful Slim Herb Supplement was found to contain undeclared Desmethyl Sibutramine. Sibutramine is an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. The FDA has not approved this product, therefore, the safety and efficacy of the product is unknown.

FDA advises that this product poses a threat to consumers because Sibutramine 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.

Joyful Slim Herb Supplement is marketed as a Natural Herb for Weight Loss and is packaged in plastic bottles containing 30 capsules per bottle and bears UPC 8 97966 00200 7. The affected lot/code being recalled is 101408 and was sold to distributors and retail stores nationwide and via internet sales. To date, no illnesses or injuries have been reported to the company in connection with this recalled product.

J & H Besta Corp. has discontinued distribution of Joyful Slim and the FDA is advising consumers not to consume the Joyful Slim Herb Supplement and to return it immediately to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions should contact Jason Wang at J & H Besta Corp., toll-free, at 877-547-5468, Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, Eastern Daylight Time.

Any adverse reactions experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program online [at www.fda.gov/MedWatch/report.htm]; by phone 1-800-332-1088 [1-800-FDA-1088]; by returning the postage-paid FDA form 3500 [which may be downloaded from the MedWatch “Download Forms” page], by mail [to address on the pre-addressed form]; or by fax [1-800-FDA-0178].
