Court Bars Salud Natural From Selling Aloe, Joint Supplements & More
On March 8, 2022, a federal court ordered Salud Natural Entrepreneur, Inc. to stop distributing nutritional supplements that violate the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA).
According to a complaint against the company and it’s owner, Hector Pablo Oliva, filed by the United States on March 3 2022, the company violated the FDCA by distributing adulterated and misbranded dietary supplements and unapproved drugs that the company claimed would cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent diseases such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The United States also alleged that Salud did not comply with good manufacturing practice regulations and, on one occasion, the company used ingredients that tested positive for Salmonella.
In 2016, the FDA issued a warning letter to Salud after a facility inspection found the company’s aloe, prostate, joint health supplements, and other products to be adulterated because they were prepared, packed or held under conditions that violated Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements.
In a news release about the case, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Brian M. Boynton, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division stated, “Nutritional supplement makers must comply with laws and regulations meant to protect public health…The department is committed to working with its agency partners to take action against manufacturers who risk the safety of consumers failing to adhere to the FDCA.”
Under the new court order, Salud cannot sell its products until it complies with federal law. The order prohibits the company from manufacturing, processing, labeling, holding or distributing products that they claim can treat or cure disease, and requires that it bring operations into compliance with current good manufacturing regulations.
