FDA Advisory No. 2014-080

This post is published to help the FDA Philippines to inform the public about the FDA advisory No. 2014-080 released on October 28, 2014. The said advisory is all about the false, deceptive and misleading advertisement of My Jinga Juice that has been circulating in social media and internet.

According to the advisory signed by Atty. Nicolas B. Lutero III, CESO III (Assistant Secretary, OIC FDA Philippines), "My Jinga Juice" (categorised as food product) has made different health claims which violates RA No. 3720 as amended by RA No. 9711 and AO No. 2014-0030 clearly specified in VII. Misleading Declaration/ Represetation/Prohibited Claims.

Please be informed that any food products approved by the government agency shall not cure any symptoms or disease. In this regard, any health claims written in the packaging or advertisement must be read carefully and should be taken seriously. If in doubt of the food products bought in the market or any other vendor, you can freely contact FDA Philippines in their official email address at .

The above case is currently under investigation.
