Just in time for the windup to ad campaigns for the fall/winter cold/flu season, FDA has sent Zarbee’s, Inc. a Warning Letter alerting the company that its dietary supplement products are in fact illegal drugs, some prescription drugs, given the claims that the company is making on the web, Facebook, and Twitter.  FDA also notified Zarbee’s that it is responsible for the content of testimonials on the company’s Facebook page.  Zarbee’s has 15 days from June 27 to notify FDA of the specific steps that the company intends to take to correct the violations noted in the Warning Letter.
