The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned consumers Friday not to use two unapproved Brazilian &to=http://english.pravda.ru/society/2003/03/07/44160.html' target=_blank>diet pills because testing has revealed they may contain tranquilizers, antidepressants and stimulants.

The pills are sold over the Web as Emagrece Sim, or the Brazilian Diet Pill, and Herbathin, the Food and Drug Administration said. The pills are billed as all-natural but may contain active ingredients, including controlled substances, normally found only in prescription drugs like Librium and Prozac.
