WASHINGTON Herbal Science International has announced that it will recall twelve of its dietary supplements because they may pose a serious health hazard for consumers, according to published reports.

The supplements each contain ephedra, which can have dangerous effects on the heart, aristolochic acid which can cause cancer and/or kidney damage, or human placenta, which can contain diseases, according to published reports.

The Food and Drug Administration, as a result, sent out a warning for those who purchased the products to immediately stop using them and return them for a full refund, or if they experienced any reactions to contact a doctor immediately.

The products that have been recalled are Wu Yao Shun Qi San; Qing Bi Tang (nasal cleanser); Zhong Fong Huo Luo Wan (stroke revito formula); Xiao Qing Long Tang (Little Green Dragon); Ding Chuan Tang; Xiao Xu Ming Tang; Feng Shi Zhi Tong Wan (joint relief); Guo Min Bi Yan Wan; Fang Feng Tong Sheng San; Tou Tong San (headache formula); Du Huo Ji Sheng Tang (Du Huo joint relief); and Seng Jong Tzu Tong Tan.
