It is necessary to clarify that, to this date, this company has not received reports of illnesses related to the consumption of this product; however, the recall from the market began after the Food and Drug Administration issued the safety alert with the title “FDA Issues Warning About Certain Tejocote Root Supplements Substituted with Toxic Yellow Oleander,” in an effort to comply with current regulations regarding this type of incidents and in compliance with the laws in force in the United States of America.


Additionally, it is reported that the marketing of the product in the United States of America is definitively suspended, discontinuing the product.


ACTION

“We ask consumers who have purchased the recalled lots of ELV ALIPOTEC MEXICAN TEJOCOTE ROOT SUPPLEMENT PIECES, NET. WT, 0.3 0Z (7g) to return them to the place where they made their purchase to obtain an exchange for another product marketed by the company.


CONTACT

Consumers with questions can contact the company at +1 (956) 612 -8408 (Monday- Friday 10:00 am-5:00 pm CT)”


Finally, it is important to mention that for the exchange to be valid, it is necessary that the product corresponds to the one sold by WORLD GREEN NUTRITION, INC., since in the case of apocryphal or pirated products that have been acquired outside the network from authorized distributors, they cannot be exchanged for other products.
