FDA Warns Seller Reishi Mushroom Supplements

On February 7, 2018, the FDA issued a warning letter to Reishi D. International, Inc., following a facility inspection which found the company's Reishi D. supplement to be adulterated because it was prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements. 

These violations include improper quality control, failure to collect samples of certain lots, and failure to establish and follow written procedures for fulfilling the requirements for returned dietary supplements.

Statements made to promote the product were found to be drug claims. For example, the brochure states "contains more than 30 different flavonoids and antioxidants to help control free radicals. Free radicals are caused by waste from our body cells that increase with...infections...and toxins."  

In addition, the company's Reishi D. product was found to be misbranded because the label provides incorrect serving size information and failed to provide other required information.
