If you are taking Hydroxycut, you need to be aware of a massive recall involving this product line. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently warned consumers to stop taking this popular dietary supplement, as it has been linked to liver problems.
There have already been 23 reports of severe Hydroxycut liver injuries, including the death of a 19-year-old man. It has been reported that a liver transplant was required for one user of Hydroxycut and many others experienced liver failure, seizures, jaundice and cardiovascular problems.
The warning has been issued regarding 14 Hydroxycut products. For a full view of the recalled dietary supplements, visit our Hydroxycut Has Been Linked to Liver Damage page.
