Hydroxycut Recall

Fourteen Hydroxycut products, dietary supplements used for weight loss, are being recalled by the FDA after being linked to liver damage. "The FDA said it has received 23 reports of serious liver injuries linked to Hydroxycut products, which are also used as energy enhancers and as fat burners. The reports include the 2007 death of a 19-year-old man living in the Southwest, which was reported to the FDA in March. Other serious liver problems reported included liver damage that resulted in a transplant in 2002, liver failure, jaundice, seizures and cardiovascular problems." Read more.
