Safety advisory

28 June 2011

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is aware that some Australian consumers may have purchased the product Pure Fat Three Days Reduce Weight capsules over the internet.

The label of this product claims the ingredients to be 100% herbal in origin. However, analysis undertaken by the TGA Laboratories in Australia has confirmed the presence of therapeutic quantities of sibutramine in these capsules. Consumers are advised that sibutramine was a prescription-only medicine supplied in Australia until it was withdrawn in October 2010 due to safety concerns, particularly in patients with history of cardiovascular disease.
