Latest News:  Seller of Magnesium, Calcium, Silver and More Warned for Manufacturing Violations, Drug Claims
(Date Posted: 5/23/2015)

On May 8, 2015, the FDA issued a warning letter to Pick and Pay, Inc., dba Cili Minerals, following a facility inspection which found the company's products, including Magnesium, Calcium, Bone Structure and Water of Life to be adulterated because they prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements.

These violations include failure to establish product specifications for the identity, purity, strength, and composition for each dietary supplement and failure to make and keep documentation of calibrations, each time the calibration is performed, for instruments or controls used in the manufacturing or testing of a dietary supplement. 

(See ConsumerLab.com's Reviews of Magnesium Supplements and Calcium Supplements for tests of related products.)

In addition, statements made on product labels for PoLith, Lithium, Germanium, CilZinCo, Cilver and ADD-Ease were found to be drug claims. For example, PoLith was promoted with statements such as "[I]t might help mental disorders... [A]dhd, autism, bipolar disorder, brain injury, epilepsy, hepatitis...liver cirrhosis, parkinson's [sic] disease ...troke.CilZinCo was promoted with statements such as "[C]olitis ...diarrhea, herpes ...meningitis, shingles ...whooping cough.
