Internet Pain Product Recall; Undisclosed Active Drug Ingredients


 Pain Free By Nature recalled Reumofan Plus Tablets purchased through their website because they contain undisclosed active pharmaceutical ingredients: methocarbamol and diclofenac. The recall was initiated after the FDA discovered that the product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of the active pharmaceutical ingredients, making it an unapproved drug. Use of this product could result in serious and life-threatening injuries.

 

Reumofan Plus is used as a treatment for muscle pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, bone cancer and other conditions. This product comes in thirty tablet containers and is packaged in a green and gold box. Reumofan Plus was distributed nationwide through internet sales. Pain Free By Nature did not manufacture the product but did distribute to customers nationwide. Distribution has been completely terminated by the company.

 

Consumers who have Reumofan Plus should be aware that the product may pose a serious health risk. Consumers who are taking these products or who have recently stopped taking Reumofan Plus should immediately consult a health care professional.
