Beauty products with alleged fake FDA Seal of Approval being sold in PH

FDA Memorandum Circular 2013-030 prohibits the “use of the FDA logo, the words “Food and Drug Administration” or “Philippine FDA,” the initials “FDA,” or any imitation of such words, initials or logo in print and other forms of broadcast media… in connection with any health product or merchandise… that convey that such use is approval, endorsement or authorization by the FDA.”

The EcoWaste Coalition has already alerted the FDA about the misuse of the agency’s logo in the said A&W products through an e-mail sent to the Center for Cosmetic Regulation and Research.
