U.S. Marshals seize more than $300,000 worth of drugs and dietary supplements

At the request of the FDA, U.S. Marshals have seized more than $300,000 worth of products-including NC Solution, an antifungal product—and other drugs for human or animal use, dietary supplements, and ingredients to make those products. The reason? Some products lacked FDA approval and all were maintained under grossly unsanitary conditions by General Therapeutics Corp., St. Louis, Mo., according to FDA. The agency considers NC Solution a drug because it is intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, or treatment of disease in people or animals. The FDA recommends that consumers who have any products manufactured by General Therapeutics, including NC Solution, consult their healthcare provider about discontinuing use.
