HSA warns against six herbal health products
The Health Sciences Authority, HSA, has sounded the alert on six herbal health products found to contain undeclared western medicinal ingredients.
The products are 'Herbal Health Backplus 500mg', 'Herbal Health V+', 'Herbal Health RU Special Cream', 'Herbal Health YI Special Cream', 'Herbal Health JI Special Cream' and 'Herbal Health XIANG Special Cream'.
HSA says it has since seized the products from the company's premises at Kallang Pudding Road and stopped all sales of the products.
It's currently investigating the source of manufacturing of these products.
Members of the public who are consuming or using the six 'Herbal Health' products are advised to stop doing so ans seek medical advice if they feel unwell.
It says instead of complementary health products promising 'miraculous cures' the public should seek proper medical treatment for acute and chronic medical symptoms and conditions.
HSA says it will take strong enforcement actions against those who engage in the sale and supply of health products containing undeclared potent medicinal ingredients.
Anyone found to contravene the Poisons Act faces a penalty of up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment for a period of up to two years under the Poisons Act.
