Court Shuts Down Supplement Manufacturer

On March 13, 2017, the U.S. District Court for Colorado ordered dietary supplement manufacturers and distributors  EonNutra LLC, CDSM LLC and HABW LLC, and their owner, Michael Floren, to stop all operations until they come into compliance with federal regulations. 

The businesses share a location and have been inspected by the FDA four times since 2012. The inspections found the companies' products to be adulterated due to numerous violations of current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements, including failure to establish specifications for dietary supplement components and failure to test or verify that components and finished products meet product specifications for identity, purity, strength or composition. Follow-up inspections found that Floren repeatedly failed to make the corrections needed to comply with current Good Manufacturing Practices. Some products were also improperly labeled or promoted with drug claims. 

In 2013, EonNutra issued a recall of its Growth Factor Complex containing deer antler velvet due to potential bacterial contamination.

Before the companies can resume operations, they will be required to recall their dietary supplements, hire labeling and good manufacturing practices experts and receive written permission from the FDA to resume operations.
