Consumer Warning: Bee Pollen

June 20th, 2014 by MorganDowney Leave a reply »

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers about using bee pollen, a supplement used for weight loss. According to the FDA, bee pollen products have been found to contain hidden and potentially dangerous ingredients that can be harmful for people with conditions such as irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and bipolar disorders. In April, the FDA advised consumers to immediately stop taking  one specific product, Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen, because it contained at least one ingredient not listed on the product’s label. The company uses an elaborate marketing scheme to make consumers believe the product is not counterfeit.
