MANILA—The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Wednesday released a list of 5 unregistered food products and supplements, which the agency said the public should not buy or use. 

In an advisory dated July 22, 2021, the FDA identified the brands as:

  • Gluta Slim 22-in-1 Herbal Coffee Mix
  • Magnesium therapy oil with black cumin oil food supplement, 100ml (unbranded) 
  • Manuka Honey Candy (labels are in foreign language)
  • Rooibos Tea (labels are in foreign language)
  • TestoUltra testosterone enhancer

According to the FDA, the products are not registered with the agency and were not issued a proper certificate for sale and use. 

"Thus, the agency cannot guarantee their quality and safety . . . Consumption of such violative product may pose potential danger or injury to health," it said.

 

The FDA warned businesses from distributing, advertising and selling the products.
