FDA Warns Public On Misleading Claims of Some Feminine Products
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) interim chief Rolando Enrique Domingo has issued a sanitary napkin alert.
FDA released an advisory informing the public regarding misleading claims of sanitary napkin brands. The false accusations claim that using those panty liner brands may cause different types of diseases.
Domingo advised the public to be more vigilant regarding the misleading accusations on several feminine product brands. He also clarified that using those products cannot cure diseases like urinary tract infection, hormonal imbalance, and other ailments.
“The public is thus advised to be vigilant and observe precautionary measures in purchasing unregistered panty liners/sanitary napkins with health claims, false, deceptive and misleading health claims,” the advisory said.
The FDA executive explained that sanitary napkins and panty liners are not required to obtain an authorization except only for products with health claims. Domingo also warned the sale of unregistered products is a violation of the Food and Drug Administration Act of 2009.
Meanwhile, misleading, false, and deceptive advertisement of those products is considered as a violation of the Consumer Act of the Philippines of 1992.
