Firm Press Release

Under the brands: La’ Trim Plus, Jenesis and Oasis, all lots and expiration dates.

Recent Analysis by the Food and Drug Administration has found undeclared Sibutramine and Phenolphthalein in the Dietary Supplement “La’Trim Plus”, “Oasis”, and “Jenesis”. As a Seller of these products, my customer’s health is my first priority, therefore BeeXtreme LLC is recalling all lots of La’ Trim Plus, Jenesis and Oasis products from the market.

Sibutramine and Phenolphthalein pose a significant health hazard. Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010. It is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke. Phenolphthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not currently approved for marketing in the United States. Health risks associated with phenolphthalein could include potentially serious, gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heartbeat, and cancer with long-term use.

Please determine if you have any of the above products on hand. If so, please discontinue selling the products and do not consume them. Please promptly dispose of all identified products. (more…)
