Seller of Protein Powder, Spirulina & Other Products Warned for Manufacturing Violations

On October 31, 2018, the FDA issued a warning letter to DynaPro International, Inc.following a facility inspection which found the company's products, including DynaPro Vanilla Supreme and DynaPro Berry Supreme protein powders and DynaPro Spirulina, 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 and failure failed to establish and follow written procedures to fulfill the requirements related to product complaints, as required by federal regulations.

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, the company's DynaPro Spirulina was promoted with statements such as " [Spirulina] has helped in the healing of ulcers and the treatment of diabetes"

In addition, some of the company's products were found to be misbranded because the product labels did not provide information required by federal regulations. For example, certain product labels did not identify the part of the plant (e.g., root, leaves) from which each botanical dietary ingredient was derived, and DynaPro Vanilla Supreme contains a color additive that is not listed on the label.

The company is required to notify the FDA in writing of the specific steps taken to correct the violations within fifteen working days of receipt of the warning letter.
