Health Warning Issued By Council

Tuesday September 2 2014

A HEALTH warning has been issued to people who may have purchased a slimming coffee.

The product, called 'Body Beauty 5 Days Slimming Coffee', has been removed from retail premises in Barnsley.

Barnsley Council analysed the product and found that it contained sibutramine, a stimulant chemical that is structurally related to amphetamine.

Sibutramine - banned in the UK - is linked to a number of serious side effects including an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.

The product, which appears to have been manufactured in Korea, made several illegal health claims ranging from skin whitening and firming to five pounds weight loss in a week.

Coun Roy Miller, cabinet spokesperson for place, said: "This product was described on the packaging as a pure, natural, healthy and safe slimming product with no side effects, despite it containing potentially dangerous synthetic chemicals."
