"Our Firm is eager to hear from any consumer who purchased Anatabloc dietary supplements.

Anatabloc FDA Warning Letter

Anatabloc is manufactured by Star Scientific, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The product retails for $99.00 per bottle, and is available for sale at GNC, a nationwide chain of health and wellness stores.  A key ingredient in Anatabloc is anatabine, which occurs naturally in cauliflower, eggplant, potatoes, and tomatoes,

On December 20, 2013, the FDA issued a warning letter to Star Scientific which took issue with statements made by the company regarding anatabine's anti-inflammatory properties, specifically its purported ability to mitigate inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease and traumatic brain injury. The FDA warning letter also characterized anatabine as a new drug that requires approval by the FDA.

On December 31, the FDA released a Consumer Alert that specifically noted the warning letter issued to Star Scientific. The purpose of the Alert was to caution the public about companies which offer untested, unproven and possibly dangerous products that claim to prevent, treat or cure concussions and other traumatic brain injuries. According to the agency, these products are not backed by scientific evidence that proves they are safe or effective for such purposes.

Consumers who purchased Anatabloc dietary supplements may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturers and sellers of this product.
