The Food and Drug Administration warned dieters and body builders to immediately stop using Hydroxycut after the FDA received reports of liver damage and other health problems. The FDA said the maker of the popular dietary supplement has issued a voluntary nationwide recall of 14 Hydroxycut products.

The FDA has received “23 reports of serious health problems ranging from jaundice and elevated liver enzymes, an indicator of potential liver injury, to liver damage requiring liver transplants.” Other reported health problems include seizures, cardiovascular disorders and a type of muscle damage that can lead to kidney failure.

The FDA said one death due to liver failure has been reported. In a statement, the agency said it is “important to note that even people who had no pre-existing medical conditions have needed liver transplants after taking Hydroxycut.”

Hydroxycut products are sold for weight loss, as fat burners, energy-enhancers, low-carbohydrate diet aids and for water loss under the Iovate and MuscleTech brand names.

Iovate Health Sciences, Canadian makers of the diet and body building pills, reportedly sold over nine million packages of the pills last year.

“The FDA urges consumers to discontinue use of Hydroxycut products in order to avoid any undue risk. Adverse events are rare, but exist. Consumers should consult a physician or other health care professional if they are experiencing symptoms possibly associated with these products,” said Linda Katz, M.D., interim chief medical officer of the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.
