FDA warns companies to stop illegally selling CBD products for food-producing animals

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warnings to four companies illegally selling CBD products for use in food-producing animals.

The FDA sent warnings to four companies, Haniel Concepts, Hope Botanicals, Plantacea and Kingdom Harvest. The FDA warns these companies that the cannabinoids in CBD products may not be safe for them or the food supply. The FDA has also expressed concern that pet owners may put off seeking professional treatment for animals “because they rely on unproven claims associated with unapproved CBD products.”

Research on the use of CBD for animals is very limited. However, it is often marketed and many believe it can help their pets with different ailments, such as pain management or seizure control. The FDA said the agency believes CBD products do not have enough safety data to know whether they are safe for pets or can cure diseases in animals.

“While the FDA does not know the current extent of CBD use in food-producing animals, the agency is now taking action regarding these unapproved and potentially dangerous products to help protect animals and safety. food supply,” the agency said in a statement.

These companies now have 15 working days to stop selling the products and remove any illegal trade claims. Always seek professional advice before using CBD for yourself or any pet or animal.
