FDA: Don't Buy Drugs Marketed as Antimicrobial Dietary Supplements
Date:5/13/2011

ases in Texas in which children received emergency care due to worsening illnesses after being given products that the parents may have believed contained antimicrobials. These products were packaged to resemble antimicrobial drugs that are readily available in Mexico.  It was determined the children had been given a product, Amoxilina, which the parents may have believed was the antimicrobial Amoxicillin. Giving the product to the children delayed legitimate medical treatment.

Who is at Risk?All consumers are at risk. Although package labels are printed in English and Spanish, the packaging mimics antimicrobials readily available in Mexico and possibly familiar to Hispanic consumers.
