Public warned vs unregistered supplements

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned the public against the purchase and consumption of 18 unregistered food supplements that are circulating in the market.

The FDA issued the warning as these products “have not gone through the registration process of the agency and have not been issued the proper authorization” and may pose potential health risks among consumers.

The unregistered food supplements include Puritan’s Pride Cod Liver Oil, Nature Made Iron, Nature’s Blend Ginseng, Nature’s Blend Vitamin D3, Puritan’s Pride Selenium, KonWeiPo Alaska Deep Sea Fish Oil, KonWeiPo Lecithin, Emperor’s Tea 15 in 1 Herbal Mix Powder Original, Power Cells Soya Coffee, Natural Herb Lagundi Food Supplement, Natural Herb Serpentina Food Supplement, and First Nutribio Circumix.

Consumers are also warned against buying Nutribio Immune Booster, VigRX for Men Herbal Supplement, Natural Herb Spirulina Food Supplement, Trunature Digestive Probiotic,, L’il Critters Gummy Vites Complete Multivitamins, and Nature Made CholestOff Plus.

The FDA said selling unregistered food supplements is against Republic Act No. 9711 or the “Food and Drug Administration Act of 2009”.

In view of this, the FDA urged all concerned establishments not to distribute the products until they have obtained proper authorization, and called on local government units and law enforcement agencies to ensure that these products are not sold in their localities. (PNA)
