Warning over slimming drink found in Barnsley

Have your say

A health warning has been issued over a ‘slimming coffee’ with links to the drug amphetamine - which is believed to have been sold only in Barnsley.

Barnsley Council removed the Body Beauty product from retail premises as its labelling appeared to be making illegal health claims such as weight loss and skin whitening.

Analysis has found it contains subutramine, a stimulant chemical related structurally to amphetamine and banned from use in the UK because of links to serious side effects.

Anyone who may have purchased the product, thought to have been made in Korea, is advised not to consume it.
