GSK is alerting consumers that some bottles of its alli® over-the-counter weight loss medication have been tampered with.

What Does The Tampered Product Look Like:

– The outer carton may look authentic.
– The bottle may contain a range of tablets and capsules of various shapes and colors.
– The bottle may not have a label.
– The bottle’s tamper evident seal may not be intact, not be made of foil and/or not have the authentic alli® wording: “Sealed for your Protection.”
– The lot numbers and expiration dates on the bottle do not match the lot number and expiration date on the outer carton.
– To date, some bottles bearing the following lot numbers and expiration dates on the carton have been reported to us by consumers as containing product other than alli®:
– Carton Lot 14372, Expiration: 02/28/2016
– Carton Lot 14395, Expiration: 02/28/2016
– Carton Lot 14124, Expiration: 09/30/2015
– Carton Lot 14267, Expiration: 01/31/2016
– Carton Lot 14442, Expiration: 04/30/2016

Where Tampered Product Was Found:

These tampered products were reportedly purchased by consumers at retail stores in the following seven states: Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina and Texas.

What Authentic alli® Looks Like:

alli® is a turquoise blue capsule with a dark blue band. It is packaged in a labeled bottle that has an inner foil seal imprinted with the words: “Sealed for your Protection.” The same Lot and Expiration Date codes should be printed on both the bottle label and the outer carton. Check to make sure your alli® looks like this. Please see attached photos of an authentic alli® capsule, bottle with label and alli cartons below.

What Consumers Should Do:

– Consumers should not use the product if the authentic alli® features as described above are not present, or if they have any concerns.
– If you have consumed any product which you think may not be alli®, you should contact your healthcare provider.
– GSK is seeking cooperation from consumers in this investigation. If you suspect you have purchased any inauthentic alli® product, please promptly contact our Consumer Relations line at 800-671-2554 and a representative will provide you with further instructions. All product and packaging materials, including pamphlets, seals, etc. should be retained pending further instructions.
