Bella All Natural is voluntarily recalling Bella Diet Capsules containing sibutramine, an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010 due to safety concerns.
Sibutramine and its active metabolites substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present significant health risks including heart attack, arrhythmia, and stroke.
The company has not received any reports of adverse events or injuries.
The recalled product, used as a diet pill, is packaged in a plastic bottle, with 30 pills, and the Lot Number MFD:10.15.2017 EXP: 10.14.2019. It was distributed in California on the internet and retail sales.
What to do
Customers who purchased the recalled product should stop using it immediately and return it to place of purchase.
Consumers with questions may contact Bella all Natural at (323)552-6263 Monday – Sunday, 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. (PST) or by email at email@example.com.
