The FDA has released another warning, this time for bee pollen capsules. The FDA warns consumers to stop using Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen Capsules immediately because the product for weight loss and body reshaping contains ‘at least one potentially harmful active pharmaceutical ingredient that is not listed on the product’s label.’ and states: ‘Tainted product contains undeclared drug ingredients with health risks’
The FDA boast it has tested many of the Zi Xiu Tang bee pollen products and have found them to contain either one or both of these ‘undeclared drug ingredients’ in the bee pollen capsules:
Phenolphthalein which is a chemical that studies have shown to have a risk for causing cancer and it ‘is not an active ingredient in any approved drug in the United States.’ the other undeclared drug is called Sibutramine which is ‘a controlled substance and was removed from the market in 2010 for safety reasons.’
Reports to the FDA have been numerous with cardiac problems such as ‘heart palpitations, tachycardia (increased heart rate), suicidal thoughts, chest pain, diarrhea, anxiety, insomnia, increased blood pressure and seizure.’ that are associated with the product use of Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen.
The FDA website states:
‘The FDA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, protects the public health by assuring the safety, effectiveness, and security of human and veterinary drugs, vaccines and other biological products for human use, and medical devices. The agency also is responsible for the safety and security of our nation's food supply, cosmetics, dietary supplements, products that give off electronic radiation, and for regulating tobacco products.’
