FDA warns homeopathic company about illegal product claims

(HealthDay)—Nutra Pharma Corp. has been warned about illegal marketing of unapproved homeopathic products with claims that they can treat addiction and chronic pain from serious conditions such as cancer, diabetes, shingles, and fibromyalgia, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says.

A warning letter was issued to the company for the products Nyloxin Oral Spray, Nyloxin Topical Gel, Nyloxin Topical Roll-On, Nyloxin Topical Roll-On ES, Nyloxin Professional Size Pump Topical Gel, and Regular Strength Sample Pack. The names of the products may also confuse consumers because they are similar to the names of FDA-approved products, the agency said.

The FDA asked Nutra Pharma to respond within 15 working days and warned that failure to correct the violations may result in legal action such as seizure and injunction.
