The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a product recall for two brands of anti-inflammatory turmeric food supplements. The supplements were found to be contaminated with a prohibited drug, nimesulide.
The product in question, branded as Fortodol or Leppin Miradin, have been linked to numerous liver damage-related adverse events in Scandinavia , including two deaths from liver failure. No adverse events had been recorded in the UK, but a recall was initiated as a precautionary measure.
The products in question are made by a Californian company called Donsbach, which exports the products to Sweden before they are shipped throughout Europe.
