Hydroxycut was pulled off the market after a recall by the US Food and Drug Administration. The reason for the recall was the medical side effects caused by use of the dietary supplement. Hydroxycut has been linked by the US FDA to jaundice, liver damage, heart problems, seizures, abdominal pain and nausea.
These side effects have caused a large number of injuries and hospitalizations as well as one death. Before the recall, many Hydroxycut users became ill without knowing the cause. Now that it has been shown to be Hydroxycut, consumers are able to stop use and in some cases heal. Unfortunately, the supplement has caused permanant damage in some consumers.
