Sales of Customized Dietary Supplements Blocked by Federal Judge
A federal judge halted sales by a California company that customizes dietary supplements by name and formulation until the company clears an FDA inspection.
Custompax, of Fremont, marketed its products through web sites on which doctors and others ordered dietary supplements by selecting ingredients and unique names or labels. According to the FDA’s legal complaint, Custompax violated current good manufacturing process standards by failing to establish specifications for the supplement ingredients and for the finished products and by failing to test the products for purity and strength.
Magistrate Judge Susan van Keulen for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California entered a consent decree in the FDA’s legal case against Custompax, banning sales by the company.
