Green Barley Powdered Juice Drink - Unregistered

I was watching Salamat Dok (October 6, Sunday) when I heard that this Green Barley "A Total Food" Supplement is not registered and not authorized to market. 

Yes, it is so frustrating to know that green barley powdered juice drink has deceived its users including us. (With much dismay/regret, we have been drinking this for quite some time. And now we have to STOP dahil nakakatakot talaga. This really scares us to death.)

It is also sad to know that FDA has found this issue just now and has only advised the buying public, the consumers of its non-compliance to the agency's standards and rules/regulations.

To FDA authorities: 
Bakit ngayon lang po? Napakatagal na po palang paso ng kanilang lisensya at registration. Marami na pong nakainom, nakabili at nakapag-stock ng produktong iyan. Nakakalungkot, nakakabahala. 

Suggestion: FDA has to closely monitor and update itself on a regular basis so as to avoid this kind of thing. At any rate, it is better late than never. Thanks for the info.  

Thus, please make the persons (Health Wealth International Corporation officials, personnel and staff) liable for this to face the consequences. Justice must be served. Kindly take the necessary and immediate actions.
