Hydroxycut Recall Lawyers Oklahoma

Hydroxycut is an entire line of products that has been selling at high levels in the United States on an over-the-counter basis. It’s marketed as a dietary supplement, and it promises to burn fat naturally and quickly so that those who want to lose weight can simply purchase one of those products and burn fat and calories.

Unfortunately, Hydroxycut could become the latest product that is known as something that’s simply too good to be true, as 14 different individual products marketed under the Hydroxycut brand have been recalled by the manufacturer in accordance with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Below is an overview of this burgeoning medical and legal issue.

Hydroxycut | Weight Loss Diet Pill

Hydroxycut is manufactured by Health Sciences Inc., which is based in Canada but has a distributorship in Buffalo, New York. The company produces an entire line of dietary supplements, which is an important distinction. If a product is designated as a supplement instead of a medication, it does not need FDA approval in order to be marketed. Hydroxycut products were sold in retail outlets across the United States as a result.

Hydroxycut works by raising the body’s temperature, which is a process known as thermogenesis. When this occurs, the body’s metabolism increases its speed and calories and fat tend to burn faster. Body builders also began to use these products because they showed a tendency to burn fat and calories while protecting lean muscle mass.

The Problem with Hydroxycut

Unfortunately, the FDA recently began receiving reports – 23 in number as of this writing – of consumers who had used Hydroxycut product developing serious side effects, most of which included damage to the kidneys and the liver. Some of these liver problems were serious but correctable, including jaundice, but others involved complete liver failure that needed surgical intervention and even a transplant. One 19-year-old man died after taking the products, and it was these reports that prompted FDA involvement and the subsequent recall.

Specifically, the following products were recalled by the manufacturer:

  • Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Rapid Release Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore Liquid Capsules
  • Hydroxycut Max Liquid Capsules
  • Hydroxycut Regular Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore Drink Packets (Ignition Stix)
  • Hydroxycut Max Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Liquid Shots
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore RTDs (Ready-to-Drink)
  • Hydroxycut Max Aqua Shed
  • Hydroxycut 24
  • Hydroxycut Carb Control
  • Hydroxycut Natural

Hydroxycut Injury? What to do

As directly stated by the FDA, if you are using any of the products listed above, stop doing so immediately. You should also contact your doctor to obtain a full medical evaluation, as problems that include kidney and liver damage could take some time to manifest themselves outwardly. You should also contact Privett Law as soon as possible to schedule a free initial consultation if you or someone you love has been injured as a result of using Hydroxycut products.
