Seller of Whey Protein Warned for Manufacturing Violations, Drug Claims

On July 22, 2016, the FDA issued a warning letter to New Horizon Nutraceuticals, LLC, following a facility inspection which found the company's product, One World Whey Protein Power Food to be adulterated because it was prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements.

These violations include failure to conduct at least one appropriate test or examination to verify the identity of any component that is a dietary ingredient, as required by federal regulations. 

In addition, statements about One World Whey Protein Power Food on the product label, including "Glutathione works to eliminate mercury, heavy metals, and virtually all toxins. It also neutralizes free radicals, thereby stopping cell damage and inflammation," and "I'd highly recommend One World Whey to anyone dealing with chronic pain due to inflammation," were found to be drug claims.
