StarCaps recall expanded

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Balanced Health Products expands its voluntary recall of StarCaps Diet Systemto include additional lots - numbers 12/2009-82866 and 12/2010-8301 - because the capsules in the 30-count bottles contain the undeclared ingredient bumetanide, a diuretic that can cause serious fluid and electrolyte loss. The firm says in a Dec. 8 release it believes an additional lot of raw material was contaminated with bumetanide in Lima, Peru. The company suspended StarCaps shipments after National Football League players alleged the product contained bumetanide, which can mask steroid use (1"The Tan Sheet" Nov. 3, 2008, In Brief)
