FDA warns of dangerous dietary supplements
The Food and Drug Administration has received dozens of reports about harmful side effects – including stroke and death – linked to two dietary supplements currently on the market, Reumofan Plus and Reumofan Plus Premium.
The agency has issued a safety alert to warn consumers about the dangers of the supplements. They are both marketed as natural dietary supplements but the FDA claims they have potentially dangerous active ingredients that aren’t listed on their labels. The supplements are used to treat arthritis, osteoporosis, muscle pain, bone cancer and a host of other ailments.
They are manufactured in Mexico by Riger Naturals, but sold in the United States in some stores, Internet sites and flea markets. Most are labeled in Spanish but there could be versions with English labels.
