FDA Warns Companies for Illegally Selling Food and Beverage Products that Contain CBD

On Nov. 21, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted warning letters to five companies for illegally selling products containing cannabidiol (CBD). Warning letters were sent to the following companies:

11-11-11 Brands | Naturally Infused LLC | Newhere Inc dba CBDFX |
Infusionz LLC | CBD American Shaman, LLC

These companies are selling CBD containing products that people may confuse for traditional foods or beverages which may result in unintentional consumption or overconsumption of CBD. The warning letters also outline additional violations of the FD&C Act, including that several of the companies are illegally selling unapproved CBD products that claim to cure, mitigate, treat or prevent various diseases, and adding CBD to animal foods, such as pet treats.
