Urgent FDA Recall of Herbal Weight Loss Supplement

In April of this year, we reported on an FDA recall of ELV Control Herbal Supplement. The product was marketed as a weight loss supplement but contained a deadly substance. Now, additional lots have been announced. We’ll include the original recall below as we highlight the additional lots.

The FDA has announced a recall of ELV Control Herbal Supplement, a product marketed for use in weight loss, due to the presence of a deadly plant. The herbal supplement is sold only through authorized retailers and is not available through e-commerce platforms or physical stores. If you believe you may have purchased this product, carefully read further to determine if you may be affected by the recall.

As of the writing of this notice, the FDA has not announced any adverse events related to the contamination.
