Maker of Collagen Supplement Warned for Manufacturing Violations

On July 17, 2014, the FDA issued a warning letter to Morhaim Pharmalab, Inc., following a facility inspection which found the company's collagen supplement, Vital Procollagen, 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 establish and follow written procedures for the responsibilities of the quality control operations, and failure to establish product specifications for each dietary supplement the company manufactures for the identity, purity, strength, and composition of the finished batch of the dietary supplement, and for limits on those types of contamination that may adulterate, as required by federal regulations.

In addition, Vital Procollagen was found to be misbranded because the labels fails to include required information, such as all the common or usual names of each ingredient, and a domestic address or domestic phone number for reporting adverse events.
