Iowa Select Herbs, LLC (the “Company”) is conducting a consumer recall for inventory sold between January 1, 2015 and August 17, 2015 pursuant to a Consent Decree issued by the federal court for the Northern District of Iowa.

Iowa Select Herbs, LLC (the “Company”) is conducting a consumer recall for inventory sold between January 1, 2015 and August 17, 2015 pursuant to a Consent Decree issued by the federal court for the Northern District of Iowa. The Consent Decree was issued because the Company manufactured and distributed unapproved new drugs, misbranded drugs, misbranded dietary supplements, and dietary supplements not manufactured in compliance with the current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations for Dietary Supplements, and therefore adulterated. There are no reports to date of side effects or adverse events.

The recalled products are herbal extracts marketed under the Iowa Select Herbs brand in either an alcohol or alcohol free (A/F) solution packaged in various sizes from 1oz to 1 gallon. The following lots are being recalled (Photos of the recalled labels can be found here: http://store-vgtbh.mybigcommerce.com/content/Attachment%20B%20Product%20Labels.pdf):
