“The public is hereby warned that the said product is not registered with this office, including the aforementioned claims,” the FDA said.
“Taking food and/or food supplements that have not undergone evaluation and testing in terms of safety and quality may present harmful effects to one’s health.

The agency ordered all its field officers to exercise their regulatory functions and requested all local governments and law enforcement agencies to ensure that the product is not sold in their localities.
