NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Some people taking a weight loss drug face a rare "Urgent" recall warning.

The Food and Drug Administration announced today a recall of Labri's Body Health Atomic.

The administration classifies this recall "Urgent" because the weight loss drug contains a banned substance called Sibutramine. The substance is known to spike blood pressure and pulse rate. Sibutramine may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.

You can return Labri's Body Health Atomic for full refunds.

If you think you're suffering from adverse reactions to the weight loss drug, the FDA wants to hear from you. Click here for a link to the administration's reporting forms.
