Drug Recall AttorneyThe United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has officially warned consumers to discontinue using the popular weight loss product, Hydroxycut. In a press release issued May 1, 2009, the FDA made the warning about the product after receiving numerous reports of serious liver damage among those using the dietary supplement products.
