  • Don’t be an #AprilFool. If it sounds too good to be true – it probably is… Be mindful of health scams. For more advice watch our short video >> https://fda.gov/consumers/health-fraud-scams
  • The FDA has become aware that “Real Water” brand alkaline water is still being offered for sale through online retailers. We are working to locate any remaining products to ensure they are no longer available to consumers. http://go.usa.gov/xsu9g
  • @US_FDA is reiterating that it is crucial that consumers, restaurants, distributors, and retailers to NOT drink, cook with, sell, or serve “Real Water” alkaline water. We continue to monitor this situation closely and follow up when recalled products being offered for sale.

  • Nearly 90% American farmers do not make the majority of their money from farming. Now is the time to transform our food & agriculture system to create a fairer, more transparent food system, support value-added opportunities, & build new markets & streams of income for producers.
