PhotoGlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare is voluntarily recalling all Alli weight loss products from U.S. and Puerto Rico retailers.

The company believes that some packages of the product were tampered with and may contain product that is not authentic Alli. 

GSK received inquiries from consumers in seven states about bottles of Alli that contained tablets and capsules that were not Alli. A range of tablets and capsules of various shapes and colors were reported to be found inside bottles.

Additionally, some bottles inside the outer carton were missing labels and had tamper-evident seals that were not authentic. The tampered products were purchased in retail stores.

Alli is a turquoise blue capsule with a dark blue band imprinted with the text “60 Orlistat.” It is packaged in a labeled bottle that has an inner foil seal imprinted with the words: “Sealed for Your Protection.”

Consumers should confirm any Alli in their possession matches this description.

Consumers who have product they are unsure or concerned about should not use it. Instead, they should call GSK promptly at 800-671-2554, and a representative will provide further instructions.

PhotoAbbott is recalling its FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meter and FreeStyle Flash Blood Glucose Meter, both of which have not been in production since 2010. No other Abbott Diabetes Care meters are affected by the recall

When used with the Abbott FreeStyle test strips, the recalled meters may produce mistakenly low blood glucose results. Abbott began notifying users on Feb. 19, 2014, immediately after the issue was discovered.

The company recommends the following actions for people with meters affected by this recall:

  • Immediately contact Abbott Diabetes Care at 1-888-345-5364 to obtain a replacement meter.
  • If you have access to an alternative glucose meter, immediately discontinue use of the affected meter and take the necessary steps to continue to monitor your blood sugar with the alternative meter.
  • If the only meter available to you is an affected meter, continue to test your blood glucose as recommend by your doctor while you wait for your replacement meter. When using an affected meter, take the following precautions to reduce the chance of a false reading:

           -- As stated in the product insert, perform a quality control solution test to confirm that your meter is working correctly. Do not use a test strip vial if control solution results are not within the expected range.
          -- Contact your health care provider immediately if your blood glucose result(s) are not consistent with your diabetes history, how you feel, or if you think your results are not accurate (higher or lower than expected). Symptoms of high blood sugar include excessive thirst, excessive urination, blurred vision, weakness, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or are not feeling well, contact your health care professional immediately.

This recall does not apply to any other Freestyle brand blood glucose monitoring systems. Freestyle Lite, Freestyle Freedom Lite and Freestyle InsuLinx systems may continue to be used with the Freestyle test strips.

PhotoHonda is recalling 6,954 model year 2013 CB500 (FA, F, XA, X) and CBR500 (RA, R) motorcycles.

The rocker arm shaft retaining bolts may have been manufactured incorrectly resulting in the bolts loosening during engine operation. A loose bolt will initially result in a slow leak of engine oil, but if not addressed, the bolt can come out of the cylinder head entirely. Without a bolt, the engine will have reduced power which may result in a stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rocker arm shaft retaining bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2014.

Owners may contact Honda Customer Service at 1-866-784-1870.
