Default Hydroxycut recalled!

http://mmamania.com/2009/05/01/liver...age-and-death/

Quote:
Liver injury, although rare, was reported by patients at the doses of Hydroxycut recommended on the bottle. Symptoms of liver injury include jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes) and brown urine. Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, light-colored stools, excessive fatigue, weakness, stomach or abdominal pain, itching, and loss of appetite.

The FDA urges consumers to discontinue use of Hydroxycut products in order to avoid any undue risk. Adverse events are rare, but exist. Consumers should consult a physician or other health care professional if they are experiencing symptoms possibly associated with these products, said Linda Katz, M.D., interim chief medical officer of the FDAs Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

The list of products being recalled by Iovate currently includes:

Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Caplets
Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Rapid Release Caplets
Hydroxycut Hardcore Liquid Caplets
Hydroxycut Max Liquid Caplets
Hydroxycut Regular Drink Packets
Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Drink Packets
Hydroxycut Hardcore Drink Packets (Ignition Stix)
Hydroxycut Max Drink Packets
Hydroxycut Liquid Shots
Hydroxycut Hardcore RTDs (Ready-to-Drink)
Hydroxycut Max Aqua Shed
Hydroxycut 24
Hydroxycut Carb Control
Hydroxycut Natural
Wow... that sucks... I took a hydroxycut hardcore less than an hour ago lol

The ridiculous thing about it is out of 9 million bottles sold, 23 people have had "serious" health issues.

The FDA has received 23 reports of serious health problems ranging from jaundice and elevated liver enzymes, an indicator of potential liver injury, to liver damage requiring liver transplant. One death due to liver failure has been reported to the FDA. Other health problems reported include seizures; cardiovascular disorders; and rhabdomyolysis, a type of muscle damage that can lead to other serious health problems such as kidney failure.
Let's do a comparison. I don't have the numbers, but I'm sure nobody would argue that 9 million beers has given "serious" health issues to more than 23 people.

The problem - people are abusing the product. Simple as that.

Yeah... sounds like it.
Although it said rare but definite cases from the recommended doses.
It is possible people aren't admitting to abusing it.

and on the bottle is says do NOT take more than the recommended dose.

I can guarantee you there have been more "serious health" issues from energy drinks rather than Hydroxycut. The FDA is just a bunch of ****ers!
