Federal Judge Shuts Down Colorado Dietary Supplement Makers

Mar 15, 2017

U.S. District Judge Marcia S. Krieger for the U.S. District Court for Colorado entered a consent decree of permanent injunction against EonNutra LLC, CDSM LLC and HABW LLC, manufacturers and distributors of unapproved drugs and dietary supplements, and their owner, Michael Floren, requiring Floren’s businesses to immediately cease operations until they come into compliance with federal laws.

Floren marketed products on many websites, including www.sotosupplements.com, www.deerantlermax.com, www.warhorselabs.com, www.primalragenutrition.com and www.dnnutrition.com. In addition, his products were sold in a retail location in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The FDA said in a press release that they inspected Floren’s businesses, which shared a location, four times since 2012. Despite assurances from Floren that the deficiencies noted during the inspections would be corrected, follow-up FDA inspections revealed that Floren repeatedly failed to make the necessary corrections.

The consent decree prohibits Floren and his businesses from marketing misbranded or unapproved new drugs and adulterated or misbranded dietary supplements. Before Floren and his businesses can resume operations, they must, among other things, recall their dietary supplements, hire labeling and good manufacturing practices experts and receive written permission from the FDA to resume operations.

EonNutra, CDSM, and HABW are based in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The complaint was filed by the U.S. Department of Justice on behalf of the FDA.
