The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a safety alert for Reumofan Plus and Reumofan Plus Premium, natural dietary supplements used to treat arthritis, bone cancer, osteoporosis, muscle pain and other conditions.
The all-natural dietary supplement contains severe and potentially fatal prescription ingredients not listed on the label.
Dozens of reports have been made to the FDA since the agency issued its first warning for the supplement June 1, 2012. Reports include stroke, death, liver injury, severe bleeding, weight gain, withdrawal syndrome and adrenal syndrome.
The supplements are made in Mexico by Riger Naturals and labeled in Spanish with English versions as well.
Consumers taking Reumofan Plus or Reumofan Plus Premium are urged to stop taking the drug and speak with their healthcare provider immediately.
