Keto capsules sold in T&T recalled due to health risk

The US Food and Drug Administration has recalled a supplement used by people on the Keto diet, being sold in Trinidad ad Tobago and a few other countries.

The product that has been recalled is NaturesPlus Keto Living Sugar Control Capsules.

Natural Organics announced the recall as the NaturesPlus supplement contains an ingredient that’s not listed on the label.

Unfortunately, the ingredient in question is gluten, making Keto Living Sugar Control Capsules dangerous to anyone who is allergic to wheat or gluten.

Also, anyone suffering from other wheat- or gluten-related health conditions are being told they should avoid NaturesPlus capsules from the recalled lots.

During routine testing, the company discovered that the product contains gluten.

An investigation revealed that one raw material which is usually gluten-free tested positive for the wheat protein.

Buyers who purchased NaturesPlus Keto Living Sugar Control Capsules recently should look for the following identifiers to determine if the product is included in the recall:

NATURESPLUS KETO LIVING SUGAR ConTROL CAPSULES, 90 CAPSULES, Product No. 82004, UPC Code 097467820043, Lots 1362073, Best By 10/2025 and 1365200, Best By 10/2025

NATURESPLUS KETO LIVING SUGAR ConTROL CAPSULES, 90 CAPSULES, Product No. Ue82004, UPC Code 097467820043, Lots 1361754, BBE 10/2025 and 1364325, BBE 10/2025

The capsules come in white jars with black caps.

The labels have orange, white, and black print. The lot numbers and best-by dates are on the bottom of the jars.

Natural Organics said it exported the product to buyers in Kenya, Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.

People with gluten-related health problems can experience significant side effects after consuming the capsules.

Allergic reactions can range from mild to life-threatening. Symptoms can include swelling, itching, irritation of the mouth and throat, hives, nasal congestion, headache, difficulty breathing, cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and anaphylaxis.

Anaphylaxis can be fatal for people who suffer from severe allergies. Swelling of the throat can lead to breathing issues, and people can experience chest pain, dizziness, and fainting.

Celiac disease has different symptoms that are primarily digestive: diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, bloating and gas, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, and constipation. Some overlap exists between the two, so it’s important that you can tell these conditions apart.

The product is still safe to consume for anyone who doesn’t suffer from a medical condition related to wheat or gluten.
