For Immediate Release
May 2, 2009
NUTRITION SYSTEMS CUSTOMER COMMUNICATION

Nutrition Systems and Nutrition Systems NZ Pty Ltd advises that the Hydroxycut branded products distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Nutrition Systems and Nutrition Systems NZ Pty Ltd are different in key ingredients and overall formula from the products that were subjected to the recall in the United States.

In addition, unlike in the United States, all Nutrition Systems’ Hydroxycut products in Australia underwent pre-market listing with Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) prior to market release. This process requires that all ingredients are fully declared to TGA and need to be pre-approved for use in these products at the dosages stated on the label. All Hydroxycut products distributed by Nutrition Systems Australia and Nutrition Systems NZ Pty Ltd all bear the AUST L number on the label as a result of this stringent pre-market listing process.

Based on the above Nutrition Systems and Nutrition Systems NZ Pty Ltd will continue to distribute the Australian and New Zealand Hydroxycut formulations at this time.

Nutrition Systems will work closely with the TGA in Australia and Medsafe in New Zealand in respect of all the Hydroxycut products. If more information comes to hand this will be released accordingly.

For more information please contact Mr. Ken O’Driscoll, Chief Executive Officer Nutrition Systems Australia and Nutrition Systems NZ Pty Ltd on + 61 08 9272 4155.

We thank you for your continued support.
