Two dozen cases of liver damage in Hawaii are now blamed on a popular weight loss product.

One patient has died and the manufacturer is now stopping distribution of the supplement OxyElite Pro.

Eleven patients were hospitalized for acute hepatitis and two received liver transplants.

A 48-year-old mother of 7 died.

All had been using OxyElite Pro.

The original version of the product was changed to eliminate an ingredient linked to serious illness.

The company stands by the safety of the current supplement.
