FDA has concluded that dietary supplements containing ephedrine alkaloids pose a risk of serious adverse events including heart attack, stroke, and death and that these risks are unreasonable in light of any benefits that may result from the use of these products under their labeled conditions of use or under ordinary conditions of use if the labeling is silent. 

Qualiherb advises any customers in possession of the above products with matching lot numbers return any unused products to the company directly for a full refund. Customers can call Quality Control at 1- 800-533-5907 Monday thru Friday 8:30 to 5pm Pacific Standard time for instructions on the return and refund process.
