Hydroxycut Pulled From Shelves After Consumer Dies

In a not entirely surprising move, the FDA has issued a warning to consumers using Hydroxycut, a dietary supplement that has been linked to severe liver damage and has led to at least one death.

The company that manufactures Hydroxycut, Iovate Health Sciences Inc, has already started recalling the product. According to Linda Katz of the FDA, "The FDA urges consumers to discontinue use of Hydroxycut products in order to avoid any undue risk. Adverse events are rare, but exist." The Hydroxycut website has already been changed to redirect to "Hydroxycut Information," which currently shows information regarding the recall. [Reuters] [Hydroxycut]
