Regeneca Worldwide Expands the Recall of Regeneslim Appetite Control Capsules

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding the expanded recall of RegeneSlim appetite control dietary supplement to include lot #823230415, lot #EX0616r 15813, Lot # EX0616R15814 and Lot #11414re5516 due to the presence of DMAA. DMAA is also known as 1,3-dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine, or geranium extract. DMAA is commonly used as a stimulant, pre-workout, and weight loss ingredient in dietary supplement products.

DMAA is potentially dangerous to health as it can narrow blood vessels and arteries, which can cause a rise in blood pressure or other cardiovascular problems such as shortness of breath, arrhythmias, tightening in the chest and heart attack.

RegeneSlim is purchased by and distributed through a direct sales force within the United States and Puerto Rico, and through online sales, for both personal consumption and retail sales.  RegeneSlim is packaged in approximately 3 1/2" by 3" green and white sachets that contain 2 capsules, with the name RegeneSlim displayed prominently on the front of the sachet. 

The full recall can be found at:  www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm412303.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery.
