FDA Threatens to Shutdown CA Walnut Company Over MISBRANDED DRUGS (Walnuts)

Who Knew Drugs Could Taste So Good?

Just out of curiosity, how soon would the FDA/and or the TSA’s budget be cut if the US were to default on its debt?  Perhaps a debt default would be the best thing that could happen to us…regardless of the vault in silver prices.


A company which sells walnuts has been told they are dealing in drugs because their packaging suggests health benefits which the Food and Drug Administration has not approved, it has been reported.
A fiercely-worded letter from the agency allegedly insisted Diamond Foods, from Stockton, California, remove the health claims or send off for a new drug application if it did not wish to be closed down.

The nut company has been selling its products with packaging which states the omega-3 fatty acids in walnuts have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and some types of cancer.
But while the claims are backed up by research, including 35 published medical papers supporting assertions that eating walnuts improves vascular health and may reduce risk of heart attacks, the FDA is said to have insisted the company is ‘misbranding’ its foods because the ‘product bears health claims that are not authorised by the FDA’.

    It is just too much, however, the population (in general) has asked for this. They want to be protected; they want to be cared for; they need to be told what to do, how to do it, and when to do it; what to eat, what not to eat, and when to eat; they want to be sheltered; they want to be paid; they want regulation, rules, …
    The monster is now out of control.

    this is complete bullshit. Cheerios has a label that says it's good for your heart. So does many other cereals and DOZENS upon DOZENS of products. Did they have to file paperwork "to sell drugs"? Give me a break!

    It sounds to me like some friend of a stinking Politico wants that company on the cheap.

    The only thing I can think of that would make my heart glad is if someone lined up all these FDA goons and kicked them all in the walnuts and cut off their peanuts.
