Another Supplement Recalled Due to Undeclared Ingredient

Filed December 3rd, 2013 Laurie

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced November 29 that IQ Formulations, of Sunrise, Florida had initiated a recall of all lots of its 45-capsule bottles of Hydravax because it may contain an unlisted ingredient.

Hydravax is advertised on MetabolicNutrition.com as a “high potency diuretic weight-loss solution” that works by “extracting and removing excess water weight,” “expelling water quickly and effectively with strong urinary astringent,” “sparing critical electrolytes to prevent muscle cramping,” and through “long-lasting effects to stop ‘bounce-back’ water weight gain.”

An FDA analysis of a single lot of Hydravax showed that the product contained a diuretic. Diuretics can cause an electrolyte imbalance due to water loss. Symptoms of the condition include polyuria (excessive or abnormally large production or passage of urine), nausea, vomiting, weakness, lethargy, fever, flushed face, and hyperactive deep tendon reflexes. Excessive doses of diuretics can also cause low potassium, low levels of chloride in the blood, low blood sodium, dehydration, lethargy and gastrointestinal irritation.

Hydravax  was distributed nationwide in retail stores and by mail order.

IQ Formulations has suspended production of Hydravax while it continues its investigation into the source of the contamination. Consumers who purchased the recalled supplement are urged to return the capsules where they purchased the product to receive a full refund.
