Bayer, a German drug manufacturing company, is told by the FDA to stop violating safety regulations. FDA says no more illegal drug marketing of aspirin by Bayer.
October 29, 2008: West Palm Beach, FL (JusticeNewsFlash.com) The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned Bayer yesterday with two letters. The FDA told the German conglomerate to stop false advertising of two types of Bayer products on the U.S. market. Bayer Women’s Low Dose Aspirin + Calcium and Bayer Aspirin with Health Advantage are marketed as being effective in battling heart disease and osteoporosis. The FDA states treatment for heart disease and osteoporosis must be reviewed by scientists and cannot be sold over the counter. Bayer has not complied with this regulation.
