FDA airs warning anew Versus peddlers of unregistered Herbal products

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently aired anew a warning to the public against alleged medicinal herbal products claiming to heal deadly diseases including cancer, particularly those that do not have certificates of product registration (CPR) issued by the agency.

The FDA issued the warning following reports that a recently raided pharmacy in clinic in Central Luzon have been telling its patrons through social media that a recently-conducted raid by the FDA “did not follow due process”.

“This is clearly an attempt to use social media bashing to hide the fact that the supposed health products being sold in that facility are not registered,” FDA Director-General Nela Charade Puno said.

“It is the mandate of the FDA and its responsibility to the public to stop the sale of such unregistered products, particularly those that are claimed to have healing properties for diseases such as cancer,” she explained.

At a recent operation against the Tarlac-based clinic owned by a certain Farah Bunch, the FDA regulatory enforcement team led by retired Police Chief Superintendent Allen Bantolo seized more than P800 thousand worth of unregistered health products being offered for sale in the facility’s pharmacy.
