Anti-fat supplements ‘pose risks to health’
The department is urging bodybuilders and weightwatchers in the county to be vigilant when purchasing fat-busting supplements after some elsewhere in the country were found to contain an illegal and potentially deadly chemical.
Supplements containing 2,4-Dinitrophenol (DNP) have been linked to a number of deaths across the UK.
A trading standards spokesman said products containing the chemical were “unfit for human consumption” and could not be sold legally for consumption purposes, but could be bought online from outside the EU.
If anyone sees products that contain DNP, they should call trading standards on 0845 051 0845.
