FDA Warns Seller of Cough Suppressant & Grape Seed Supplements

On March 29, 2018, the FDA issued a warning letter to Yoder's Good Health Products following a facility inspection which found a number of the company's products, including Respiratory & Cough Formula and Life Drops 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 and follow written procedures for the responsibilities of the quality control operations, failure to ensure that the dietary supplement is packaged and labeled as specified in the master manufacturing record, and failure to collect samples of each lot of packaged and labeled supplement.

The FDA also warned that the company's Yoder's Good Health Recipe contains ingredients intended as food additives, including goldenseal and black cohosh, which are not approved for use as food additives. 

(See ConsumerLab.com's Reviews of Berberine and Goldenseal Supplements and Menopause Supplements (Including Black Cohosh) for tests of related products.)

In addition, some of the company's products, including Respiratory & Cough Formula, Stress & Anxiety Support, Life Drops, and Muscadine Grape Seed & Skin Extract, are misbranded because their labels do not identify them as dietary supplements, as required by federal regulations.
