Maker of Probiotic Supplement Warned for Manufacturing Violations

On December 18, 2014, the FDA issued a warning letter to Wellmill LLC, dba Vitamix, following a facility inspection which found the company's products, including Butcher's Broom powder and Lactobacillus acidophilus powder (used as ingredients in a finished product which was not named) 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 ensure that the tests and examinations used to determine whether the specifications met were appropriate, scientifically valid methods, and failure to hold dietary supplements under conditions that do not lead to the mixup of dietary supplements, as required by federal regulations.
