Alli weight loss products recalled in U.S. and Puerto Rico

See also

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a diet pill recall on March 27. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare has recalled all Alli weight-loss products from the U.S. and Puerto Rico due to possible product tampering.

In addition, GSK believes some of the packages may not contain the authentic Alli diet pills.

The affected product – based on inquiries from consumers who purchased the inauthentic diet pills – were reported to contain a range of tablets and capsules of various shapes and colors inside the bottles; the tamper-evident seals were also suspect.

Consumer reports of the fake diet pill have affected retail stores in Ala., Fla., La., Miss., N.Y., N.C. and Texas states.

GSK are asking consumers who suspect they may have purchased or have any concerns as to the authenticity of any Alli weight-loss products, should contact Consumer Relations at 800-671-2554; save the product, packaging materials, including pamphlets and seals pending further instructions from the company.
