Seller of Apple Cider Vinegar, Joint Supplements & More Warned for Drug Claims

On April 25, 2018, the FDA issued a warning letter to Baker's Best Health Products, Inc. following a facility inspection and a review of the company's website, which found statements made about some of the company's products, including Colon Formula, Eterni-D, Triple Action Joint Formula, and Apple Cider Vinegar+, to be drug claims. 

For example, Apple Cider Vinegar + was promoted with statements such as "Fenugreek... also may help to lower high cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood sugar levels" 

See ConsumerLab.com's Apple Cider Vinegar Review for tests of related products.

Triple Action Joint Formula was promoted with statements such as "Supports increased range of motion and mobility" and "[R]educe joint swelling and stiffness" 

See ConsumerLab.com's Review of Joint Health Supplements for tests of related products.

In addition, several of the products were found to be misbranded because the labels did not provide information required by federal regulations, or other marketing material included false statments. For example, Eterni-D was promoted in a pamphlet with the statement "Eterni-D is manufactured in an FDA-approved lab under strict quality control guidelines." However, the FDA does not approve dietary supplement labs or manufacturing facilities.
