Body Beauty 5 days slimming coffee, which is manufactured in Korea, makes a number of illegal health claims.
It has now been revealed as an unlicensed medicine containing a banned substance that could lead to an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.
The product was removed from a retail premises in Barnsley last month by council regulatory services officers because of fears about its bogus health claims.
All the stock in that one shop was seized and the retailer concerned has since ceased trading.
Now anyone who may have bought the Body Beauty slimming coffee before it was taken of the shelves is being warned not to drink it.
