U.S. Marshals seized over 300,000 containers of Life Rising Corporation’s dietary supplements in a raid requested by the Food and Drug Administration.
The products were sold under the brand names Life Rising, Holicare, and HopeStream and were worth an estimated $3.5 million. They were seized because the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois said the products were prepared, packed, and/or held under conditions against the current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) requirements.
“This seizure underscores the agency's commitment to taking aggressive action when manufacturers distribute adulterated dietary supplements that have the potential to put consumers at risk,” said Melinda Plaisier, the FDA's associate commissioner for regulatory affairs. “The FDA has a variety of enforcement tools at its disposal, and when products don't comply with FDA regulations, we will not hesitate to take appropriate action.”
Life Rising Corporation was also cited for possible lead in three of their products — Life Rising Holder-W Holder Warmer capsules, Life Rising NECK-ND Neck Clear capsules, and HoliCare Metabolism Cleansing (MET-CLS) tablets.
