A man who bought a package of Superman herbal medicines from a drugstore in Kansas was surprised to discover that the capsules contained an ingredient that’s been banned by the Food and Drug Administration.
The medication has been linked to cancer and birth defects.
According to The Kansas City Star, a man named Thomas was shopping at a Walmart store in Kansas City on Thursday when he spotted a bag of the pills in the store.
He was surprised that the medication was supposed to treat skin disease.
“The package said it was a combination of herbs and spices, and I looked at it and I thought, ‘Well, that’s not so good,'” Thomas said.
The package contained the herbal medication, but it also contained a non-prescription drug that is prohibited by the FDA.
According the FDA, “a prescription drug can be treated with a medicine when it is not available from a pharmacy, but that does not mean that the medicine will be effective if it is taken in a pharmacy.”
The drug, which is called Superman, is not approved by the agency, but a spokesperson for the agency says it is still approved.
Thomas says he’s been taking the medication for a number of years.
He told KCTV he does not feel comfortable using the pills, and he is unsure if they will be able to work for him.
“It’s a combination medicine.
It can be used for a variety of conditions,” Thomas said, adding that he hopes the government will change its mind about the herbal medicine.
