DIY Fixes Don't Meet CGMP: FDA Slams Manufacturer for Fixes Involving Tape, Rubber Ba


Trusted Information Resource
Do-it-yourself fixes are a point of pride for many, from knowledgeable handymen to frugal college students. Gutters on your house leaking? Nothing some tack welding can't fix. Rubber hose in your car sprung a leak? A quick patch with some duct tape will do in a pinch.

But as a new Warning Letter from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to a dietary supplement manufacturer illustrates, shoddy DIY isn't compatible with current good manufacturing processes (CGMP).
