WASHINGTON--The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning letter to Nature's Way in late March. The letter concerned the company's Pregnancy-6 product. According to the FDA, the product is considered adulterated due to the presence of herbs that are not designated for use during pregnancy. Those herbs include Black Cohosh, which is listed as a Class 2b herb (not to be used during pregnancy) in the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) Botanical Safety Handbook. According to AHPA, the FDA states that, as labeled, the product "presents a significant or unreasonable risk of injury or illness." Visit www.fda.gov for more information.
