bathroom scale iStock CROPPED RegenESlim appetite control capsules recalled due presence of dangerous ingredientCertain lots of RegenESlim appetite control dietary supplements are being recalled because they contain an ingredient that may cause deadly side effects.

A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) analysis found in two lots of RegenESlim the presence of DMAA, also known as 1,3-dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine, or geranium extract, commonly used as a stimulant, pre-workout, and weight loss ingredient in supplements. The agency has warned that DMAA is potentially dangerous to health as it can narrow blood vessels and arteries, which can cause a rise in blood pressure or other cardiovascular problems such as shortness of breath, arrhythmias, tightening in the chest, and heart attack.

The recalled products include lot # EX0616R15814 and lot #11414RE5516. RegenESlim is purchased by and distributed through a direct sales force within the United States and Puerto Rico, and through online sales, for both personal consumption and retails sales. The product is packaged in approximately 3 ½-inch by 3-inch green-and-white sachets that contain 2 capsules, with the name RegenESlim displayed prominently on the front of the sachet.

Consumers who have purchased the affected RegenESlim products are advised to stop using them immediately and return them to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may call the company at 949-281-2600. People who have experienced any problems related to the products should contact their doctors.

Any side effects with these recalled products should be reported to the FDA MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program at www.FDA.gov/MedWatch/Report.htm.
