Hydroxycut Associated with Severe Liver Damage and Other Serious Health Problems

Hydroxycut products are dietary supplements marketed for weight loss as fat burners, energy-enhancers and low carb diet aids, and for water loss under the lovate and MuscleTech brand names.

On May 1, 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began "warning consumers to immediately stop using Hydroxycut products" hydroxycut-fda-warningdue to numerous reports from users of liver injuries and other serious health problems even when taken at doses Hydroxycut recommended on the bottle. The manufacturer of Hydroxycut has recalled the affected products. The recalled Hydroxycut products are:

  • Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Rapid Release Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore Liquid Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Max Liquid Caplets
  • 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

Hydroxycut products have been associated with serious health problems and at least one death from liver failure. Early signs of liver damage often go unnoticed. They include jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes), dark urine, light-colored stools, nausea, vomiting, excessive fatigue, weakness, stomach or abdominal pain, itching and loss of appetite. If left untreated, liver damage can lead to seizures, cardiovascular disorders, rhabdomyolysis, kidney failure and death.

If you purchased and used any of the Hydroxycut products, you may have a claim even if you have not yet suffered any serious health problem. If you or your family member took Hydroxycut products and suffered liver damage, please contact us. We want to talk to you.
