The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning about potentially dangerous undeclared ingredients found in some bee pollen weight-loss supplements. The agency has apparently received more than 50 reports of problems allegedly caused by products tainted with sibutramine and/or phenolphthalein, including one possible death, serious heart issues, chest pain, heart palpitations, increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, seizures, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, insomnia, and diarrhea. According to FDA National Health Fraud Coordinator Gary Coody, “When people buy these tainted bee pollen products, they are unknowingly taking one or more hidden drugs that have been banned from the market.” See FDA Consumer Update, June 19, 2014.
