FDA Warns Seller of Adulterated Antioxidant Supplements

On September 17, 2017, the FDA issued a warning letter to Nutritional Engineering Inc., following a facility inspection which found the company's antioxidant product (not named) as well as four other unnamed products 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 controls and procedures to ensure that each batch of dietary supplements meets the FDA's specifications, failure to establish and follow written procedures for laboratory operations, and improper quality control procedures.

In addition, some of the products contain drug claims. For example, a label describes the antioxidant product as a "High ORAC antioxidant blend."
