Seller of Omega-3 "Syrup" Warned for Manufacturing Violations and Drug Claims
These violations include failure to establish identity specifications for each component used in the manufacture of a dietary supplement, and failure to establish and follow written procedures for the responsibilities of the quality control operations.
Limpia Pecho Syrup was also found to be adulterated because it contains salicylic acid, which is an unsafe food additive according to federal regulations.
In addition, statements made on the labels of Balsamic Honey Syrup, such as "As with any drug..." under the WARNING statement" and "Safe and natural ingredients to relieve different symptoms that occur with the flu" were found to be drug claims.
Balsamic Honey Syrup, Arabian Formula Syrup, Limpia Pecho Syrup, Century 22 Purifier Syrup and Watercress and Onion, Radish-Honey Omega 3 Syrup were also found to be misbranded because the labels failed to provide information required by federal regulations.
