Bethel Nutritional Consulting of New York, N.Y., is expanding an earlier recall of its weight loss products to include Quick Thin and Bethel Advance.

These products have been found to contain Sibutramine and Phenolphthalein.

The government has not approved these products, marketed as a natural herb for weight loss, as drugs; therefore their safety and effectiveness are unknown.

The recalled products are packaged in plastic white bottles, 30 capsules per bottle as follows:

Bethel 30 bears Lot # 120514 with exp. 12/05/2014 (recalled on 6/11/13);
Bethel Advance bears Lot # 10092011 with exp. 2014;
Quick Thin bears Lot # 10032011 with exp. 10/2014.

The products were sold directly to individual customers in the company's New York sales office and online at Bethel Nutritional Consulting, Inc.. The company has discontinued distribution and sales of these products.

Consumers should not consume the products, but should return them immediately to the place of purchase.

Consumers with questions should contact Kariny Ramirez 212-568-5330 Monday - Friday, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm, EDT
