FDA and DEA send joint warning letters to illegal opioid sites

October 03, 2019 / Victoria Rees

The FDA and DEA have, for the first time, sent joint warning letters to four networks which were illegally selling opioid products. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warning letters to four online networks which were illegally marketing unapproved and misbranded versions of opioid medicines. The cautions were sent as joint with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). A total of 10 websites were found to be within the networks, which also violated the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) by failing to register their online pharmacies. The sites have been told they must cease selling the opioids, including unapproved tramadol, immediately.
