The Food and Drug Administration announced a recall on OxyElite Pro, marketed as a weight loss aid, due to multiple reports of liver damage and one death.


The action follows two FDA warnings to the Dallas-based manufacturer of the supplements, USPlabs LLC.

The FDA says one of the patients died, another needed a liver transplant and others are now awaiting liver transplants.

The recall followed a letter from the FDA notifying USPlabs that if the company did not initiate a voluntary recall, the FDA could by law order an immediate halt to distribution of the dietary supplements
