Hydroxycut Injuries

Hydroxycut® dietary supplement and weight loss products were recalled recently by the manufacturer and distributor because of an association with serious liver injuries, including death due to liver failure. The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning to consumers to immediately stop use of all Hydroxycut products, and posted a letter to all Health Care Professionals, warning of a potential risk of severe liver injury from the use of these products. Reported adverse events included hyperbilirubinemia, jaundice, liver damage, liver transplant and death. None of the 23 reported cases had any risk factors or diseases associated with liver disease or injury. In some instances, discontinuation of the Hydroxycut product resulted in recovery of liver function.

Hydroxycut® is distributed by Iovate Health Sciences, Inc. of Oakville, Ontario and Iovate Health Sciences USA, Inc. of Blasdell, New York. It is reported to be the number one selling over-the-counter dietary supplement for weight loss. The list of recalled products includes:

  • Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Capsules
