Someone said, " Our FDA is bad, they need to crack down on this kind of stuff."
Except, they can't.
This product is an herbal supplement. The FDA can't touch it. The supplement and other "natural" product manufacturers have an incredibly powerful lobby, and they have managed to get themselves specifically excluded from the authority of the FDA. The FDA is the Food and Drug Administration. If your don't put the words "food" or "drug" on the label, you can sell any c**p you want. As long as you don't use the words "treat" or "cure," and you don't put any actual drug in it, the laws about truth in labelling don't apply. That's how they get away with all those "diet supplements" that either don't work at all or have harmful ingredients. The FDA can't regulate them, and you can't sue them. There's no law that says they have to prove that they work, and no law that even says they have to tell the truth about what's in the product.
I can bottle up clippings from my lawn mixed with fireplace ashes and sell them to you as "Weight Loss Magic! (Herbal Supplement)," and neither you nor the FDA can touch me.
If you think that's wrong, write to your representatives and say you want regulation of supplements and "natural" products.
