The Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion (FDA) has warned the pub­lic to re­frain from pur­chas­ing and us­ing an un­reg­is­tered lin­i­ment.

In an ad­vi­sory, the FDA said Body Luxe Lin­i­ment may pose dan­ger to con­sumers if ad­min­is­tered.

The agency said the prod­uct has not un­der­gone test­ing process. The lin­i­ment has not been given cer­tifi­cate of reg­is­tra­tion by the FDA.

“So the FDA can­not guar­an­tee its qual­ity and safety,” the agency said.

The FDA pro­hibits the man­u­fac­ture, im­por­ta­tion, ex­por­ta­tion, sale, dis­tri­bu­tion and ad­ver­tis­ing of health prod­ucts with­out proper reg­is­tra­tion.

Sanc­tions will be im­posed on com­mer­cial es­tab­lish­ments dis­tribut­ing the vi­ola­tive prod­uct, ac­cord­ing to the FDA. –
