If you’re a fan of trying out and supporting up and coming products, you might want to be a bit more careful. While supporting small local businesses is a great advocacy, you better make sure these brands and products have secured the proper tests and registrations, especially from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Inquirer reported last Jun. 25 that the FDA has warned against buying or selling a number of food items and food supplements.
