FDA warns of false safety claims

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Monday warned consumers over several health products falsely claiming to be deemed safe by the agency.

The FDA said it had found products carrying fake FDA certificates.

These included food supplements claiming to help enhance sexual fitness, weight-loss, increase breast size, and brighten skin complexion.

The products include Bullgold, imported by PB Inter Company Limited (Thailand); Platinum Active, imported by Q B Natural Inter Co Ltd; and Herb Diet Slim, imported by PB Pretty White Co Ltd. A full list of products with fake FDA safety certificates is available on www.fda.moph.go.th.

In normal circumstances the FDA would prosecute firms issuing false certificates with their products.

However, tracking down such shell companies operating under false names can be difficult. Those who have problems after using certain products are advised to call the FDA hotline 1556, or email 1556@fda.moph.co.th to submit complaints.
