Maker of Greens and Whole Foods Supplements Warned For Drug Claims, Manufacturing Violations

On July 19, 2013, the FDA issued a warning to ProNatural Nutrition, LLC, following a facility inspection which found that statements made on product labels, including "Healing to cells and tissues," and "Non-toxic antibiotic" to be drug claims.

ProNatural Nutrition manufactures a variety of "live whole foods concentrates," whole foods capsules and drink mix powders. Specific products were not identified in the FDA’s warning.

(See's Review of Greens and Whole Foods Powders and Pills for tests of related products.)

In addition, the company's products were found 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 provide documentation of required specifications for dietary supplements and failure to establish written procedures for the responsibilities of quality control operations.
