FDA Seizes Dietary Supplements at Boca Raton Company

Comments Off

The FDA has seized $71,000 worth of dietary supplements from FulLife Natural Options, Inc., a company located in Boca Raton, Florida. The seizure highlighted the FDA’s efforts to curb the misbranding, mislabeling of dietary supplements that claim to cure medical diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and anemia. The seized products include Charantea Ampalaya Capsules and Charantea Ampalaya Tea. According to the FDA news release, the products are marketed for unapproved purposes such as the prevention or cure of certain diseases.

This seizure marks the second such FDA intervention in as many months. On August 23, 2007, Federal Marshalls seized $41,000 worth of Glucobetic, Neuro-betic, Ocu-Comp, Atri-Oxi, Super-Flex, MSM-1000, and Atri-E-400 capsules being promoted and distributed by Charron Nutrition of Tallahassee, Fla., for use in treating diabetes, arthritis, and other serious health conditions.
