FDA: Minnesota Companies Agree to Halt Sale of Amino-acid Products with Unapproved Claims
Date:9/14/2011

SILVER SPRING, Md., Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced today that two Minnesota companies have agreed to halt distribution of amino-acid products marketed to treat a number of diseases, until requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act are met.
