The Food and Drug Administration announced a diet pill recall linked to liver damage.

The FDA says USPlabs of Dallas recalled OxyElite Pro products. It's a dietary supplement used for weight loss and muscle-building.

The pills have been linked to dozens of hepatitis and liver failure cases in a number of states. 

The FDA says one of the patients died and several are now awaiting liver transplants.
