Filed under Balita Balita RSS RSS Feed

Binalaan kahapon ng Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) ang publiko sa pagbili at paggamit ng mga hindi rehistradong food supplement products na ibinebenta ng isang multi-purpose cooperative.

Sa Advisory No. 2018-319, tinukoy ng FDA ang mga produkto ng Nutriwealth Multi-Purpose Cooperative na hindi umano dumaan sa pagsusuri ng kanilang tanggapan kaya hindi batid ang kalidad at pagiging epektibo ng mga ito.

Kabilang dito ang Blumea balsamifera Sambong Capsule Natural Food Supplement, Nutriwealth Cooperative Alkaline Powder, Moringa Oleifera Malunggay Capsule Natural Food Supplement, Nutriwealth Cooperative Serpentina Capsule, Garcinia Mangostana Mangosteen Capsule Natural Food Supplement, Annona Muricata Guyabano Capsule Natural Food Supplement, Nutriwealth Cooperative Saw Palmetto Capsule, Alkaline Capsule Natural Food Supplement, Curcuma Longa Turmeric Capsule Natural Food Supplement, Nutriwealth Cooperative Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Nutriwealth Cooperative Alkaline Mineral Drops, at Nutriwealth Cooperative EENT Drops.

“FDA post-marketing surveillance (PMS) activities have verified that the abovementioned food products have not gone through the registration process of the agency and have not been issued the proper authorization in the form of Certificate of Product Registration,” abiso ng FDA.
