My bad. I could not find the FDA letter to Evangers Pet Food on the FDA website and trusted them to provide an accurate press release to me. Thanks to an anonymous phone call late this afternoon – here’s more information on the FDA ending Evangers Warning Letter investigation.
The FDA letter to Evangers stating the end of the Warning Letter investigation states…
February 28, 2013
Dear Ms. Holly Sher and Mr. Joel Sher:
The Food and Drug Administration has completed an evaluation of your firm’s corrective actions in response to our Warning Letter (CHI-12-11) dated May 5, 2011. Based on our evaluation, it appears that you have addressed the violation(s) contained in this Warning Letter. Future FDA inspections and regulatory activities will further assess the adequacy and sustainability of these corrections.
This letter does not relieve you or your firm from the responsibility of taking all necessary steps to assure sustained compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and its implementing regulations or with other relevant legal authority. The Agency expects you and your firm to maintain compliance and will continue to monitor your state of compliance. This letter will not preclude any future regulatory action should violations be observed during a subsequent inspection or through other means.
To the contrary, the Evangers press release stated “Evanger’s clears its name after a thorough investigation proves no wrongdoing”.
I did not read one statement in the FDA letter that said the FDA found no wrongdoing…did you? The February 28, 2013 FDA letter states Evangers has taken proper corrective action – “addressed the violation”. The FDA did not say the violations were dropped – that FDA found “no wrongdoing”.
Not good Evangers.
Thanks to the anonymous caller for directions to find the above letter on the FDA website!
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
