FDA warns Amazon and Walmart against selling mislabeled drugs — Pain News Network

“Failure to adequately address this matter may result in legal action, including, but not limited to, seizure and/or injunction. Please submit a written response to this letter within fifteen business days from the date of receipt, explaining the specific steps you have taken to remedy any violation,” the FDA letter reads.

Similar warning letters were sent to Walmart and Latin Foods Market, which had previously issued voluntary recalls for the supplements but continued to sell them.

It appears that the Artri and Ortiga supplements have now been removed from all three companies’ websites. The supplements were marketed primarily to Spanish-speaking consumers, with claims that they are “very effective in restoring cartilage” and “combat arthritis”.

Diclofenac increases the risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and strokes, as well as serious gastrointestinal bleeding and damage. When used long term or in high doses, dexamethasone and other corticosteroids can cause severe withdrawal symptoms if a user suddenly stops taking them. Both drugs can also interact with other drugs.

The FDA encourages health care providers and patients to report side effects related to product use to its Adverse Event Reporting System. .
