    FDA Supplement Warning

    Just doing my job here keeping you guys up to date and informing you of dangerous supplements and bodybuilding products. Do not use any of their liquid drugs or supplements!


    PharmaTech liquid drugs recalled in US over bacterial contamination


    PBR Staff Writer
    Published 14 August 2017


    The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an advisory against consumption of all liquid products manufactured by PharmaTech over concerns of possible contamination with a bacteria called Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia).


    Manufactured by the Florida-based PharmaTech, the liquid drug or dietary supplement products were distributed by Leader Brand, Major Pharmaceuticals and Rugby Laboratories.


    The distributors have all issued voluntary recall of their respective products. The recalled products were distributed across wholesale and retail facilities that include hospitals and pharmacies throughout the US, stated the FDA.


    Some of the recalled products include liquid docusate sodium drugs used for softening stools, dietary supplements like liquid vitamin D drops and liquid multivitamins targeting infants and children.


    After being notified about the contamination issue, Rugby Laboratories had voluntarily recalled Diocto Syrup and Diocto Liquid earlier in the month.


    According to the FDA, the three distributors based on additional details it provided had recalled all lots within expiry of all liquid products manufactured by it as a precautionary measure.


    It added that the distributors had dispatched recall letters and had made arrangements to recover all recalled products.


    The FDA has issued an advisory asking consumers, pharmacies and health care facilities to immediately stop using and dispensing all the recalled products.


    FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said: “B. cepacia poses a serious threat to vulnerable patients, including infants and young children who still have developing immune systems.


    “These products were distributed nationwide to retailers, health care facilities, pharmacies and sold online – making it important that parents, patients and health care providers be made aware of the potential risk and immediately stop using these products.”

    Re: FDA Supplement Warning

    This is a timely warning. Liquids have the requisite conditions for pathogens to thrive. The FDA should be given accolades for being up to their calling. However, it has to be noted that some of these products evade the radar and end up in the market. The best option is to use familiar products and avoid online purchases when it comes to liquid supplements.
