Philadelphia Hydroxycut Recall Attorneys
Hydroxycut has been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration as of May 1, 2009 due to an association with multiple cases of serious liver injury. Consumers are warned to immediately stop using any of Hydroxycut’s 14 dietary supplement products, including those that are marketed for weight loss, energy-enhancers, fat burners, low carb diet aids, and for water loss under the Iovate and MuscleTech brand names.
The FDA received 23 reports of serious health problems ranging from jaundice to liver damage requiring liver transplant. One death was reported due to a Hydroxycut liver failure side effect. Symptoms of liver damage injury include jaundice, nausea, vomiting, excessive fatigue, weak stomach or abdominal pain, itching, and loss of appetite. Other problems associated with Hydroxycut include cardiovascular disorders, seizures, and rhabdomyolysis, which is a type of muscle damage that can lead to kidney failure.
Approximately 9 million packages of Hydroxycut were sold in grocery stores and pharmacies last year. Problems in dietary supplements are detected through voluntary reports since the FDA doesn’t have authority to review supplements before they’re marketed. Despite regulators monitoring aftermarket reports for signs of trouble and stricter requirements to alert the FDA of new problems, dietary supplements like Hydroxycut still put consumers at risk.
