FDA Warns Seller of Colloidal Silver

On May 17, 2018, the FDA issued a warning letter to Silver Armor, Inc., following a facility inspection which found a number of the company's products, including Silver Armor Immune Support and Protection 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 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.

In addition, certain statements made about the products on the company's website and on product labels were found to be drug claims. For example, Silver Armor's Natural Health Immune Support & Protection products were promoted with statements such as, "Silver Armor has been very effective when wiping away my seasonal allergies. Every morning I would wake up with swollen eyes and itchy face and wonder what I could do to make this stop. A couple sips of Silver Armor eliminated most of the itching..." 

(For more about seasonal allergies, see ConsumerLab.com's answer to the question, "Which supplements are best for seasonal allergies?")

Products containing colloidal silver were promoted with statements such as "[P]eople who have low silver levels tend to be frequently sick and have frequent colds, flu, fevers and other illnesses" and "[C]olloidal silver is highly anti-viral."
