Maker of Vitamin Drinks Warned for Manufacturing Violations
These violations include failure to establish product specifications for each dietary supplement for the identity, purity, strength, and composition of the finished batch of the dietary supplement, and failure to establish and follow written procedures for the responsibilities of the quality control operations.
In addition, the company's VBlast Tropical Punch, VBlast Gator Pit Energy Formula, and VBlast Pomegranate + Cherry were found to be misbranded because the labels failed to certain information. For example, the labels included a Supplements Facts panel (as opposed to a Nutrition Facts panel, found on conventional food items), but did not include a statement on the label identifying the drink as a dietary supplement, which is required by federal regulations for dietary supplements.
The warning stated that products cannot be labeled as both a conventional food and a dietary supplement.
