Diet Drug Alli Recalled Due to Product Tampering — Physician’s First Watch
Diet Drug Alli Recalled Due to Product Tampering
By Kristin J. Kelley
The over-the-counter weight-loss drug Alli has been voluntarily recalled because consumers in seven states reported that packages were filled with capsules and tablets that were not authentic, the FDA warns.
The affected products were sold in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina and Texas. Some were missing labels and had fake tamper-evident seals. Real Alli is in capsule form, blue, and imprinted with the text "60 Orlistat." The bottle should contain an inner foil seal that contains the words "Sealed for Your Protection" on it. The manufacturer's consumer alert includes photographs of authentic product.
