Furthermore, your products are not generally recognized as safe and effective for the above referenced conditions and therefore, the products are also “new drugs” under section 201(p) of the Act [21 USC 321 (p)]. New drugs may not be legally marketed in the U.S. without prior approval from FDA as described in section 505(a) of the Act [21 USC 355(a)]. FDA approves a new drug on the basis of scientific data submitted by a drug sponsor to demonstrate that the drug is safe and effective. These drugs are also misbranded within the meaning of section 502(f)(1) of the Act [21 USC 352(f)(1)], in that the labeling for these drugs fails to bear adequate directions for use.
The above violations are not meant to be an all-inclusive list of deficiencies for your products or their labeling. It is your responsibility to ensure that products marketed by your firm comply with the Act and its implementing regulations.
The Act authorizes the seizure of illegal products and injunctions against manufacturers and distributors of those products. You should take prompt action to correct these deviations and prevent their future recurrence. Failure to do so may result in enforcement action without further notice.
Please advise this offer, in writing and within fifteen (15) working days of the receipt of this letter, as to the specific steps you have taken to correct the violations noted above and to ensure that similar violations do not occur. If corrective actions cannot be completed within fifteen working days, state the reason for the delay and the time within which the corrections will be completed.
Your reply should be sent to the attention of Mrs. Judith A. Putz, Compliance Officer, 300 River Place, Suite 5900, Detroit, MI 48207.
