Recalls: slimming capsules, gluten-free products

The following recalls have been announced:

— An undisclosed number of Celerite Slimming Capsules from Shaping Beauty Inc. of Southampton, Pa., because the weight loss dietary supplement contains an undeclared drug ingredient, Sibutramine, used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. The Food and Drug Administration says the product poses a threat to consumers because Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure, pulse rate or both in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke. No illnesses or injuries have been reported. The product was sold nationwide via the Internet. Details: Call Shaping Beauty at 800-728-2850.
