FDA Warns of Potentially "Highly Toxic" Weight Loss Products


Sep 05, 2023

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that Florida-based Todorganic is recalling its Nuez de la India Seeds, marketed as weight loss products, because they appear to be yellow oleander, a “highly toxic” plant known to contain cardiac glycosides.

Additional analysis found Nut Diet Max brand Nuez de la India capsules contained cardiac glycosides consistent with yellow oleander. The FDA has expanded its safety alert to include this product.

The Agency is also concerned that other products with similar marketing descriptions may also contain yellow oleander. Consuming yellow oleander can cause severe adverse health effects and be potentially fatal.
