    At the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S Marshals seized elderberry juice products that have been distributed by Wyldewood Cellars Inc., based in Peck, Kan., because the products are unapproved and misbranded drugs.

    Steals? So, now we can't be warned about snake oil? If that's a libertarian position, it's prima facie evidence for why they should never be allowed to rule.

    Sending jack booted storm troopers in to seize private property is not "warning" anyone of anything.

    I love the way liberals redefine words to mean whatever they want them to mean.

    "Jack booted storm troopers" :rolleyes:

    The complaint:
    According to the FDA’s complaint, Wyldewood Cellars makes claims in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) that its elderberry juice concentrate cures, treats, or prevents various disease conditions, including AIDS, diabetes and flu. The complaint was filed on May 27, 2011, in the U.S. District Court of Kansas.
    From Wyldwood Cellars own website:
    However, the FDA has complained that the labeling and advertising of Wyldewood Cellars Juice Concentrate does not meet federal guidelines for this product. We are immediately addressing the FDA's concerns by:

    • Revising all our advertising efforts to comply with FDA regulations

    • Changing the labels on all juice concentrate packages to conform with FDA-required wording

    • Meeting with FDA consultants to review and affirm our compliance efforts

    We anticipate this process will go smoothly and expect to be in full FDA compliance very soon.

    Elderberry concentrate won't cure AIDS.

    Wyldwood Cellars admits they are in the wrong.

    No jackboots were worn during the implementation of this court ordered seizure.

    "The FDA previously issued a warning letter to Wyldewood Cellars for violating the FFDCA by promoting and distributing its products as drugs. The company responded to the warning letter promising to remove all such claims from its websites. The FDA discovered during subsequent inspections that the company continues to make such claims."
    Damn jackboot stormtroopers!!! How DARE they...write...warning...letters...

    I love the way you'll lie at every opportunity to make your point.

    Question for the board: Does use of the words "storm troopers" invoke Godwin's Law? :confused:

    Warning is issuing a press release that a product may not do what the label says it does. Sending US Marshall's to take private property without a warrant is stealing.

    lol

    :clap2: to Darth Vader WHOOPS I mean the FDA. :cool: It is sad that we need an organization like this to protect us (the general public) from ourselves. If only people behaved and only made claims about their products that they could actually back up with facts and evidence.
