Ionamin and Fastin Recall


Fastin and IONAMIN Diet products contain Methylsynephrine."Methylsynephrine is a substance that does not meet the statutory definition of a dietary ingredient. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act defines a dietary ingredient as a vitamin; mineral; herb or other botanical; amino acid; dietary substance for use by man to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake; or a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract, or combination of the preceding substances. Methylsynephrine does not fit under any of these categories, rendering misbranded any dietary supplement products that declare methylsynephrine as a dietary ingredient."1 As a result Rite Aid is recalling all Fastin and IONAMIN Diet products because the contain Methylsynephrine, including:

  • IONAMIN 30 ct
  • FASTIN - XR 45 ct
  • FASTIN Rapid Release 45 ct
  • FASTIN 60 ct
  • FASTIN 30 ct
