According to FDA, the June 2, 2017 letter is “not an all-inclusive statement of violations associated with your products or their labeling, and we have not attempted to list here all of the products on your website that are intended for use as drugs. It is your responsibility to ensure that all products marketed by your firm comply with the Act and its implementing regulations.”
FDA said it advised the firm to review its website, product labels, and other labeling for your products to ensure that the claims you make for your products do not reflect intended uses that cause the distribution of the products to violate the Act.
Perfectly Posh was given 15 workings day to notify the FDA office in writing of the receipt of the letter as to the specific steps it has taken to correct the stated violations, including an explanation of each step being taken to identify violations and make corrections to ensure that similar violations will not recur.
