(NaturalNews) Relatively new to the food products market, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, a Southern California-based family company famous for its organic, fair-trade pure castile soaps, has come under scrutiny by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for merely sharing with its customers the proven health benefits of eating extra-virgin coconut oil.
The FDA sent a letter to Dr. Bronner’s on July 8, 2014, warning that its Magic “All-One!” Fresh-Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil had suddenly transformed into an “unapproved drug” based on one simple health claim indicated on its packaging. By selling its coconut oil with the stated claim, maintains the FDA, Dr. Bronner’s is engaging in the sale and distribution of an illegal drug.
“Based on our review of the product label, we have determined that your product is promoted for conditions that cause it to be a drug under section 201(g)(1)(B) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (the Act),” claims the FDA in its letter. “[I]ntroducing or delivering this product for introduction into interstate commerce for such uses violates the Act.”
