Seller of Noni Juice Products Warned for Manufacturing Violations, Drug Claims

On July 14, 2014, the FDA issued a warning to Noni Connection dba Puna Noni, following a facility inspection which found the company's Puna Noni 100% Pure Hawaiian Noni Fruit Capsules 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 any identity testing of the bulk noni power raw ingredient used to manufacture Puna Noni 100% Pure Hawaiian Noni Capsules and failure test or examine any of the finished product lots for these capsules to determine whether they meet product specifications for identity, purity, strength, composition and contamination limits.

Statements made on the company's website about Puna Noni 100% Pure Hawaiian Noni Fruit Capsules and Puna Noni 100% Pure Hawaiian Noni Juice were also found to be drug claims. The products were promoted with statements such as "Noni is still used by the local population in Hawaii for diabetes, high blood pressure... abnormal growths, and other chronic disorders," and "Noni Juice decreases pain and inflammation while protecting stomach, kidney, and liver cells." The website also contained sections entitled "Anti-Cancer Activity" and "How Noni Helps the Body Fight Off Cancer!"

These products were also found to be misbranded because the labels failed to provide nutrition information in the form of a Supplement Facts panel and other information required by federal regulations.
