Maker of Probiotic and Sports Drinks Warned For Manufacturing Violations

On November 6, 2012, the FDA issued a warning letter to CocoKefir, LLC stating that the company’s Tula’s CocoKefir, Tula’s Citrus CocoKefir, and Tula’s Apple Cinnamon CocoKefir have been prepared, packed or held under conditions which violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices.

The letter also states that these products are misbranded, because while they are labeled as dietary supplements, they are represented on the company’s website as foods, with descriptions such as “beverages,” “nature’s sports drink,” and “probiotic drink.”
