Is Hydroxycut Safe? One thing to keep in mind is the supplement industry is not required to show that their products are safe or effective before selling them. Back in 2009 there were some ingredients that caused health problems and the company recalled all the products and removed the ingredients in question by the FDA. Supposedly the product is now safe and there are no longer any ingredients that are unsafe for consumption.
