FDA Seizes Bogus Dietary Supplement That Claims to Cure Cancer
On September 18, 2003, at the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Marshals seized the dietary supplements, Forticel and Forticel Mix, from Jean’s Greens in Norway, N.Y. After an investigation of this company and its marketing practices FDA has determined that Jean’s Greens is making unapproved medical claims for these herbal products. Specifically, the products claim to treat and cure various life-threatening and serious illnesses such as cancer, although there is no scientific evidence to support these claims.
