MANILA, Philippines — The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned the public to refrain from purchasing unregistered food products.

In an advisory, the FDA said at least 23 food products and supplements are being sold in the market without certificates of registration.

The agency said consumption of unregistered food products and supplements may pose health risks to consumers.

Among the unregistered supplements are Rapidcell Therapy Vitamin E, Rapidcell Calcium and Vitamin D strawberry flavor, Rapidcell Therapy multi vitamins for kids, Thyronol Dietary Supplement and Rapidcell Therapy Magnesium orange flavor.

“Since these food supplements have not gone through evaluation process, the agency cannot guarantee their quality and safety,” the FDA noted.

The agency asked enforcement agencies and local government officials to ensure that unregistered food products are not sold in their areas.
