FDA Issues Immediate Hydroxycut Recall
FDA says Hydroxycut dietary supplement is posting a liver injury and asks the consumers to immediately stop using Hydroxycut. FDA at this point does not know which ingredients are causing the health danger and asks the consumers to report any side effects, while issuing immediate Hydroxycut recall.
The weight loss pill Hydroxycut involved in this current recall is made by Iovate Health Sciences Inc., of Oakville, Ontario and distributed by Iovate Health Sciences USA Inc. of Blasdell. We visited www.iovate.com/ and were disappointed by not finding direct information about it's Hydroxycut recall, instead Iovate names it "Important Information Regarding The Recent FDA Consumer Advisory," directing the the advisory information page. Why not directly to say, "we are recalling Hydroxycut; please don't use it because it's dangersous for your health." Aren't you sick of the pharmaceutical companies trying to soften the situation by not directly telling their own consumers about the exact situation in plain English? Especially when FDA writes in the advisory that "Iovate has agreed to recall Hydroxycut products from the market."
Hydroxycut products are dietary supplements that are marketed for weight-loss, as fat burners, as energy-enhancers, as low carb diet aids, and for water loss under the Iovate and MuscleTech brand names.

Some people have expressed their satisfaction about this Hydroxycut recall. For example DarthApathy Twits "FDA announces recall of Hydroxycut. Good, I hate those badly photoshopped pictures." However, some other Hydroxycut addicts are not happy with the FDA advised recall as those people have been using it for a long time. Some others say that the optimal way to lose weight and follow a healthy diet is the healthy lifestyle with exercise and fitness.
