 Thought this could be shared with the group and useful.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Food and Drug Administration warned diabetics
Thursday not to use five brands of Chinese herbal products, saying the
herbs illegally contain prescription drugs that could cause dangerous
drops in blood sugar. The products claim to contain only natural
Chinese herbs. 

Affected products are: 
-Diabetes Hypoglucose Capsules, sold by Chinese Angel Health Products
of Santa Monica, Calif. 

-Pearl Hypoglycemic Capsules, imported by Sino American Health
Products Inc. of Torrance, Calif., but also sold by Chinese Angel. 

-Tongyitang Diabetes Angel Pearl Hypoglycemic Capsules and Tongyitang
Diabetes Angel Hypoglycemic Capsules, sold by Sino American. 

-Zhen Qi Capsules, sold by Sino American. 

Chinese Angel and Sino American have agreed to recall the affected
products, which may be returned to the place of purchase for a refund.
