Seller of Joint Supplement Warned for Manufacturing Violations, Drug Claims

On July 15, 2016, the FDA issued a warning letter to Vitalife Inc. (dba Tabak's Health Products), following a facility inspection which found the company's products, including Bendy, ExtraLuvli and Graceful Look 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 establish finished product specifications for identity, purity, strength, and composition for the finished batch of each dietary supplement manufactured, and failure to establish and follow written procedures for the responsibilities of the quality control operations, as required by federal regulations. 

In addition, statements made on the company's website about these products were found to be drug claims. Joint supplement Bendy, for example, was promoted with statements such as "Decreases joint pain."
