The Food and Drug Association warns everyone to stop using Hydroxycut!
Hydroxycut, a popular supplement with dieters and body builders, has been linked to liver problems and the death of a 19 year old in 2007.
Although the cases of liver damage were rare considering how popular and widely used the supplement is, the company that makes the pills is voluntarily recalling the product as a precautionary measure. Refunds can be obtained by returning the pills to the store they were purchased from.
