Iowa Select Herbs, LLC is conducting a consumer recall for inventory sold between Jan. 1 and Aug. 17, pursuant to a consent decree issued by the federal court for the Northern District of Iowa.
The Consent Decree was issued because the company manufactured and distributed unapproved new drugs, misbranded drugs, misbranded dietary supplements and dietary supplements not manufactured in compliance with the current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations for Dietary Supplements, and therefore adulterated. There are no reports to date of side effects or adverse events.
The recalled products are herbal extracts marketed under the Iowa Select Herbs brand in either an alcohol or alcohol free solution packaged in various sizes from 1 ounce to 1 gallon. The recalled products are listed here.
In July, the U.S. Department of Justice, on behalf of the Food and Drug Administration, filed a lawsuit in Iowa against Iowa Select Herbs. The complaint alleged that the company’s dietary supplements are manufactured under conditions that are inadequate to ensure the safety of its products and that the company makes unlawful claims to treat or prevent diseases.
