Tennessee Consumers May be in Danger from Recalled Hydroxycut Products

Just a couple of years ago, a company called MuscleTech produced dietary supplements with ephedra that was believed to have caused strokes, heart attacks and death. That company went into bankruptcy and put new dietary supplements on the market under known as Hydroxycut. Now it appears that this new Hydroxcut product may be just as dangerous as the old product.

The FDA has received 23 incident reports of liver damage in users of Hydroxycut supplements. These injuries include jaundice, liver damage, and even liver transplant. One reported case involves a 19-year-old who died as a result of the associated liver damage. Symptoms of serious liver disease include jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes) and brown urine.

Currently the FDA has recalled the following products:

Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Caplets Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Rapid Release Caplets Hydroxycut Hardcore Liquid Capsules Hydroxycut Max Liquid Capsules Hydroxycut Regular Drink Packets Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Drink Packets Hydroxycut Hardcore Drink Packets (Ignition Stix)
Hydroxycut Max Drink Packets Hydroxycut Liquid Shots Hydroxycut Hardcore RTDs (Ready-to-Drink)
Hydroxycut Max Aqua Shed Hydroxycut 24 Hydroxycut Carb Control Hydroxycut Natural

Even you have taken any of these products and believe you have a claim please feel free to contact our Tennessee Legal Office. You can also contact us toll free at 1-800-705-2121.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
★★★★★
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
★★★★★
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
