Maker of Joint, Mood and B Vitamin Supplements Warned For Manufacturing Violations, Misbranding and Drug Claims

On February 11, 2013, the FDA issued a warning letter to Kreativ Health, Inc. (dba Natural Food Supplements) following a facility inspection which found the company's dietary supplements, including SUPER B, SUPER MSM, Super N, Super Inositol, and Caffeine Dietary Supplement products, to be adulterated because they were prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements. 

These violations include failure to conduct at least one appropriate test or examination to verify the identity of a component that is a dietary ingredient and failure to make and keep records of written procedures for calibrating, inspecting, and checking automated, mechanical, and electronic equipment.

Super N, Super Inositol, and Caffeine Dietary Supplement products were found to be misbranded because the labels did provide a Supplement Facts panel. Super N, Super Inositol, and White Crystalline Powder Caffeine Dietary Supplement products were also found to be misbranded because the labels did not provide a domestic address or phone number, as required by federal regulations. Additionally, Super MSM and Super N Dietary Supplements were found to be misbranded because the labels did not identify the products as dietary supplements.

Statements made on the Super MSM label, such as "relieves joint pain," were found to be drug claims, which violate federal regulations for dietary supplements.
