Bella Vi Products by Pure Edge Nutrition Recalled due to Undeclared Drug Ingredients

Consumers are informed by the FDA that certain lots of Bella Vi brand products by Pure Edge Nutrition are recalled because they were found to contain undeclared Sibutramine or a combination of both Sibutramine and Phenolphthalein.

Background of Bella Vi Products

FDA Alert on Bella Vi Products

FDA’s reason for the recall is that laboratory analysis revealed that these products contain undeclared Sibutramine or a combination of both Sibutramine and Phenolphthalein that may pose a threat to consumers. Sibutramine was removed from the US market in 2010 for safety reasons as it can increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some cases and may present a risk for patients with a history of stroke, arrhymias, congestive heart failure, or coronary artery disease. Phenophthalein (used as a laxative) is not approved for marketing in the US.

The affected products are: Bella Vi Insane Bee Pollen Capsules, Bella Vi BTrim Ultimate Boost, Bella Vi BTrim Max, Bella Vi Extreme Accelerator, Bella Vi Insane Amp’d, and Bella Vi Amp’d Up.
