December 10, 2015

A weight loss supplement is now subject to a recall due to the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance.

Lucy's Weight Loss System is recalling all lots of Pink Bikini White powder Capsules, 30 white (750MG per capsule) to the consumer level. Testing conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revealed the presence of diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). This undeclared ingredient makes this product an unapproved new drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established.

This product is packaged in a clear bottle, containing white powder capsules and bearing the expiration date 07/30/2017.

Consumers could purchase this item nationwide at PinkBikini.BigCartel.com and at the Waisted With Lucy Retail store in Arlington, TX.

Lucy's Weight Loss System has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall to date.

Diclofenac can increase your risk of fatal heart attack or stroke, especially if you use it long term or take high doses, or if you have heart disease. For those that are pregnant, taking diclofenac during the last three months of pregnancy may harm the unborn baby.

Lucy's Weight Loss System is notifying its customers arranging for return. Consumers that have recalled Pink Bikini supplements should stop using and discard them.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Lucy's Weight Loss System by phone (682)-308-0199 or by email at pbfitme@gmail.com.
