Recall of Dangerous Glucose Support Supplements

SugarMDs LLC and the FDA are issuing a nationwide recall of Advanced Glucose Support Supplements after the FDA discovered the presence of undeclared substances in the capsules. Use of the supplement may lead to dangerous health outcomes.

As of the writing of this notice, no reports of adverse events have yet been received.

    I thought you did a great job here. The wording is excellent and the illustration is tasteful, but there’s a feeling that you might be giving more, which would probably happen again if you go on this walk.
