A recall is out for a popular weight loss drug called Alli.

It’s over complaints related to possible tampering.

The British company that makes the over the counter drug says about 12 customers in seven different states complained they found tablets and capsules of different shapes and sizes in the bottles.

Some bottles were even missing labels or had phony tamper-evident seals on them.

The real Alli capsule is described as turquoise blue with “60 orlistat” printed on it.

The makers of the drug are working with the FDA to investigate the alleged tampering.
