Maker of Liquid Omega-3 Supplements Warned For Manufacturing Violations

On February 20, 2013, the FDA issued a warning letter to Capco Custom Packaging Inc. following a facility inspection which found the company's products, including Baby's DHA liquid and Pro DHA Infant liquid, to be adulterated because they were prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements.

Violations included failure to establish and follow laboratory control processes that are reviewed and approved by quality control personnel, for use of criteria for selecting standard reference materials used in performing tests and examinations, and failure to modify protocols to ensure accordance with regulations for microbial contamination testing procedures.
