Latest News:  U.S. Department of Justice Files Permanent Injunction Against Supplement Manufacturer
(Date Posted: 2/16/2017)

On February 16, 2017, the United States Department of Justice filed a complaint against Pick and Pay, Inc./ Cili Minerals LLC to stop the company from distributing its products, including ADD-Ease, Bone Structure, CilZinCo, Calcium, Boron, Potassium, Cilver, Sulfur and Germanium, which were found to be misbranded and adulterated.

At the time the complaint was filed, Pick and Pay agreed to be bound to a consent decree (which is currently awaiting judicial approval) to stop all production and distribution of its products. The decree will also require the company to recall and destroy remaining products.

According to the complaint, FDA inspections of Pick and Pay facilities between 2012 and 2016 found the company failed to ensure the identity, purity, strength and composition of their finished products, a violation of Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements. The FDA issued a warning letter to the company in 2015 for this and other violations, including failure to make and keep documentation of calibrations for instruments used in the manufacturing or testing dietary supplements, and failure to adequately install and maintain plumbing to avoid being a source of contamination to components, dietary supplements and its water supplies.

The complaint also alleged Pick and Pay marketed and promoted its products for the prevention and treatment of diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and multiple sclerosis -- claims which are not permitted for dietary supplements.

Pick and Pay will be required to obtain written approval from the FDA that they appear to be in compliance with remedial measures provided in the consent decree in order to resume manufacturing.
